My name is Dr Tim Crowe and I’m a career research scientist and educator with most of this spent in the absolutely fascinating, yet always controversial, area of nutrition. That means I’ve got a bunch of geeky letters to put after my name such as BSc(Hons), MNutrDiet and PhD. I’m also a credentialed Advanced Accredited Practising Dietitian with the Dietitians Association of Australia.
I started this website as a way to be proactive in providing credible, evidence-based nutrition messages in straightforward language. And then turning this information into practical implications for what it means for a person’s health. You’ll find this approach to communication all throughout the writing I do. You can browse through over 100 blog posts on this site to see this in action.
There is so much conflicting information in the field of nutrition. There are lots of people claiming to be a nutrition expert, but who can you trust? While I don’t profess to have all the answers in an area that is continually changing as research changes, you can count on what is presented here being free of any commercial influences. The information you read here is based on the whole field of nutrition science, not just selective areas that support a particular way of thinking.
I love to communicate important nutrition messages to the public in plain and simple language. To support this aim, I also write for many consumer publications and speak regularly to the general public and medical professionals through seminars, workshops and conferences. I’m also active in providing information and comment to the media.
All of my communication messages are informed by my 25-year research career which spans laboratory molecular biology research right through to clinical nutrition trials. If you really want to geek it up and know more about this research, here’s my full publication list over at ResearchGate.
