Iain has research interests in most elements of gastrointestinal health and disease. He is particularly interested in a better understanding of how dietary intake could impact on gastric reflux (the backflow of stomach contents up the oseophagus and beyond). His collaborative work on modelling the gastrointestinal system could be applied to early evaluation of a wide range of a wide range of foods, nutraceuticals and novel bioactives of interest but has particularly focused on individual dietary fibres and seaweeds to date. He has also been involved in 3 dietary surveillance projects in young Singaporeans and other projects related international health claims, including randomised, controlled trials in humans.
Iain's previous research has resulted in two international patents and the development of a spinout company.
Research Student Supervision Interests1. Dietary intake and gastric reflux. 2. Bioactive dietary fibres for cardiometabolic health. 3. Modelling of the gastrointestinal tract.
