Dr Patricia Heavey is a Lecturer in Nutrition in the Department of Sport and Health Sciences in AIT, and lead of the Nutrition and Health sub group of the SHE Research Group. Patricia is supervising Miriam Murphy who is undertaking a PhD on weight variation, body composition and body size during the menopausal transition.
