About Rona

I graduated from the University of Surrey with a 1st class degree in Nutrition and Dietetics (BSc Hons). After a year out working full time in the NHS as a general dietitian, I returned to the university to commence a PhD in Nutritional Sciences which I completed in 2016. My PhD research investigated the metabolic effects of intermittent fasting, encompassing intermittent calorie restriction (e.g. the 5:2 diet) and time-restricted feeding. My research has won me a number of awards along the way. I am recognised as one of the world leading experts on intermittent fasting, and I am regularly invited to present about my research.

I currently work at the University of Surrey as a Research Fellow in Nutritional Metabolism; check out my research page to find out more about the projects that I am working on.

Alongside (and since completing) my PhD, I have continued to work part time in the NHS specialising as a weight management and diabetes specialist dietitian. I have had the opportunity to teach dietetic colleagues about diabetes dietary management at British Dietetic Association endorsed training courses.

Why choose me as your dietitian? My experience within both clinical NHS and research settings means that I am able to provide my clients with up-to-date and evidence-based dietary advice. Importantly, I work closely with clients to provide personalised advice, tailored to individual lifestyles and preferences. Throughout my career I have worked with clients and patients with an array of medical conditions, with specific expertise in weight and diabetes management where I have a proven track record as a research dietitian in helping people achieve their dietary goals.
