Researcher biography

Dr Katherine Cullerton is a Research Fellow in the School of Public Health. Katherine joined the School of Public Health in August 2018 after completing postdoctoral research at the MRC Epidemiology Unit at the University of Cambridge, UK where she investigated whether it's ever acceptable for nutrition researchers to engage with the food industry and if it is, under what conditions.
