Spotlight on the Gemini Team:

Alison Alison Fildes:
Hi, my name is Alison and I have been lucky enough to be a part of the Gemini study team since January 2009. I completed my PhD exploring children's food preferences. In particular, I am interested in why some children refuse to eat certain foods, such as vegetables, while other children like them. I also want to help children learn to enjoy a wide variety of foods, particularly fruits and vegetables. The Gemini families very kindly helped with this research by answering lots of questions and by playing the Tiny Tastes game. After finishing my PhD I spent some time working in Australia but I couldn't stay away and returned to Gemini as a postdoctoral researcher in May 2015.
