Research interests

Dr Riddell has two primary areas of research: The impact of the micronutrients iron, zinc, sodium and iodine on the health of general population and dietary changes that occur in young adults as they transition into independent living and the influence of prior expose to food and nutrition education.

Current research projects investigating these areas include investigations into the impact of salt and iodine on the health of children; dietary strategies to improve intake and status of iron and zinc in adult women and an ongoing cross sectional study investigating food habits of young adults as they enter university.
