About the presenter:
Dr Heidi Staudacher is an Accredited Practising Dietitian with extensive experience in the clinical management of individuals with gastrointestinal disorders. She undertook her PhD at King’s College London investigating the role of diet in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and its impact on the gut microbiota. She has published numerous papers, including the first placebo-controlled trial of low FODMAP dietary advice in IBS. These have helped to progress our understanding of the potential efficacy of diet to manage gut symptoms, but also the consequences of altering diet on the gut microbiota and dietary quality. She recently joined the Food and Mood Centre in 2019 as an Alfred Deakin Postdoctoral Research fellow and will be extending her research to investigate the relationship between diet, the gut and mental health.
