Patrice studied for a degree in Biology at the University of Leeds. Following several years working in the agrochemical industry she then completed a MMEDSci in Human Nutrition at The University of Sheffield and went onto complete a PhD in the prevention of type 2 diabetes, exploring the role of fruit and vegetable intake, at the University of Leicester. Patrice continued to work at Leicester as a Research Associate in Diabetes, Nutrition, and Lifestyle.
Patrice started at the BHRU in 2016, her main interests include conducting systematic reviews of lifestyle behaviours and the implications for disease prevention, and reviewing the evidence of lifestyle interventions to change behaviour and health outcomes. The effect of the environment on health, in particular the effect of proximity and availability on consumption, and the effect of neighbourhood walkability on physical activity. Patrice is currently involved in conducting evidence synthesis reviews investigating alterations in proximity and availability to determine selection and consumption of food, alcohol and tobacco.
