Spotlight on the Gemini Team:

Andrea Smith Andrea Smith:
I joined the Gemini team in autumn 2014 to start my PhD focusing on genetic and environmental influences on health, behaviour and weight. I have always been intrigued by the observation that twins can be so alike in certain aspects, but so different in others. The reason for this enthusiasm is quite simple: I myself am an identical twin! My research will concentrate on understanding where food and drink preferences come from, and how they relate to the development of weight over time. We hope that this research will help us to improve parental feeding advice and to establish the precise importance of food and drink choices for healthy development.
