High Degree Researchers Drinking coffee. This small show is designed for academics to put their research interests in the spotlight. Please sit, learn, and enjoy a cuppa while we do to. PhD Candidate Patricia Ribeiro de Melo is interested in Food and Nutrition Policy development, specifically what influences certain policies to be more successful. Her research is backed by social constructionism and we discuss some amazing examples in Brazil which inspired her work in the first place, health departments ability to facilitate transformative change and her academic journey from Brazil to Australia to now presenting in Japan at an international conference. Patricia also shares one of her papers outside of her PhD and an interesting narrative review on paradigms in public health nutrition. Her order - Irish Tea. Enjoy
