Jeffrey is an Accredited Practising Dietitian and a PhD candidate within QUT School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences. His research project at the Centre for Childhood Nutrition Research is seated within the Responsive Feeding in Tough times (RFiTT) project. His project titled Dads at Mealtime aims to explore fathers’ role in child eating, and the ways they feed their young children in the context of disadvantage. It will identify the enablers and barriers to fathers’ feeding practices. Tailored resources and strategies will be co-created to support fathers in child feeding. Findings from this research will inform the development of child nutrition and feeding interventions that acknowledge the lived experience of fathers.
After attaining his Master’s degree in Dietetics Studies, Jeffrey has over 8 years of international experience as a dietitian practising in disability centre, aged care homes, and in education, community and corporate settings in Hong Kong and Australia. His research interest includes family and children nutrition, early infant feeding, food insecurity and working with culturally and linguistically diverse/ socioeconomically disadvantaged communities.
