Jean Adams leads the Evaluation of Population Interventions in Dietary Public Health programme within the Dietary Public Health theme at the Centre for Diet and Activity Research (CEDAR).
Jean trained in medicine at Newcastle University before completing a PhD focusing on the role of biological ageing in socio-economic inequalities in health. She then won an MRC Health of the Population fellowship which supported her to complete an MSc in Health Psychology and a programme of research on the role of time perspective in socio-economic inequalities in health behaviours.
Jean is currently involved in a range of work exploring issues around dietary public health and food policy – particularly focusing on food marketing, food retailing, cooking and how these factors interact with socio-economic position. Jean currently holds an NIHR Career Development Fellowship which funded a PGCert in Science Communication and an ongoing programme of research on the effectiveness and acceptability of financial incentives for encouraging healthy behaviours.
