Current Research and Interests
Noah is a PhD student supervised by Professor Martin White. Noah’s PhD will evaluate the effectiveness, acceptability, and scalability of population interventions to improve the healthiness and sustainability of food systems in Birmingham, as part of the MANDALA consortium.
Noah completed an MPhil in Population Health Sciences at the University of Cambridge, writing his dissertation on how investors engage with nutrition using responsible investment strategies. The project sparked an interest in how finance can be leveraged to incentivize healthier food systems.
During an internship with the NUPENS group at the University of Sao Paulo, Noah studied whether ultra-processed food consumption leads to weight gain through sleep quality as a mediator. Additionally, Noah worked at the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research at York University on the International Food Policy Study, estimating the environmental impacts of food products in Canada.
Previously, Noah researched microbiota therapies for cancer and depression at the University of Calgary, Canada, where he earned a Bachelor of Health Sciences and MSc in Gastrointestinal Sciences.
