Personal profile

Biographical details

Wendy Hall is a Professor of Nutritional Sciences in the Department of Nutritional Sciences. She is Deputy Head of the Department of Nutrition & Dietetics, Departmental Postgraduate Research Co-ordinator, and Academic Lead for the Metabolic Research Unit in the Department of Nutritional Sciences.

“My long-term research goal is to enrich understanding of how nutrition influences cardiometabolic disease risk. This is essential for the development of dietary strategies to promote healthy ageing, and to provide the highest quality evidence to inform dietary guidelines” 

Prof Hall has held an academic teaching and research post at King's since 2005, following completion of her PhD in dietary amino acids and appetite regulation at University of Surrey (2001), and postdoctoral research posts at University of Surrey (vitamin E biokinetics, 2001-2002) and University of Reading (soy isoflavones and CVD, dietary fatty acids and insulin sensitivity; 2003-2005).

Dr Hall's  broad research  interests  relate to the  the nutritional modulation of lipid metabolism, postprandial glycaemia and lipaemia, inflammation and vascular function. Specific  interests  include  investigating effects  of  dietary  fatty  acids  (omega-3 fatty acids, saturated fatty acids),  polyphenols, whole dietary patterns, and sleep/diet quality interactions on  cardio-metabolic  risk  markers, and the role of diet in management of skin disorders such as psoriasis, funded through BBSRC, Innovate UK, Almond Board of California, and charities such as Psoriasis Association and the British Skin Foundation. She is Deputy Editor for British Journal of Nutrition, Section Editor for European Journal of Nutrition, and on the editorial board of the Nutrition Bulletin.

Prof Hall is an active contributor to the scientific activities of the Nutrition Society, currently as Honorary Programmes Officer and Trustee. She was awarded the Silver Medal for scientific excellence in nutrition by the Nutrition Society (2016), and the Faculty Supervisory Excellence Award (2018). She is a Registered Nutritionist (RNutr 455, Association for Nutrition) and has been a member of the UK Nutrition Society since 1995, and the American Society for Nutrition since 2010.
