Personal profile

Public Profile

Jamie is a PhD qualified nutritionist and research scientist that has joined SAHMRI from New Zealand.

She completed her PhD at the University of Auckland where she investigated the association between maternal diet and gestational diabetes in a cohort of pregnant women from Singapore. Her main studies involved the exploration of maternal dietary patterns in Singapore and their association with the development of diabetes in pregnancy. She also investigated the hair and blood metabolome (collection of detectable low-weight metabolites) of pregnant women for the identification of biomarkers linked to gestational diabetes development, and to mechanistically link maternal diet to disease.

Throughout her studies and research career, Jamie has collaborated with research groups from Singapore, China, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, and presented her work both within New Zealand and internationally.

As a Translation Research Officer at Health Mothers, Babies, and Children, Jamie is predominantly involved in the translation and implementation of Omega-3 for the prevention of preterm birth.
