Lauren Bandy

Public health nutrition researcher

I did my undergraduate degree in Nutrition at King’s College London, and worked as a nutrition analyst for a private market research company for four years while I did my Masters in Food Policy at City University London. While working and doing my Masters I came up with a method that links food sales data with ‘back of pack’ nutrition information and realised this could be a useful research tool. I continued to develop this method for my DPhil at Oxford, which I completed last year. Broadly, I’m interested in how food and drink companies are responding to nutrition policies like voluntary reformulation targets and taxes, and the different ways we can monitor this.
