Professor Barbara Stewart-Knox

Professor of Psychology, University of Bradford

Barbara’s research interests are concerned with understanding food related behaviour and span consumer food choice (including sensory factors), nutrient/food mediated psychological functions and attitudes toward food and
eating. Most recently, interests have focussed on understanding the public perspective and consumer response to personalised nutrition. Barbara has been part of several large EU projects the most recent of which was the EU Food4Me project which employed a mixed-method design to understand public perceptions and attitudes toward personalised nutrition as well as psychological response to the personalised nutrition internet–based intervention. The research results are relevant to dietary health promotion and to the food and health industry.
