Dr Pam Birtill

Dr Birtill is interested in food, the experiences of eating and the ways in which we can influence people’s behaviour to eat more healthily.

With Professor Marion Hetherington, I examine eating in children, and how to encourage children and adolescents to have a more healthy diet. I have supervised both MSc and PhD students, and collaborate with colleagues in Healthcare and Food Sciences.

With Professor Aaron Meskin (School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science) I have been conducting research examining the effects of ethical information of expectation and experience of tastes of food.
