Dr Pedro Barra

Associate professor in Nutrition

About

I graduated in Human Nutrition and Dietetics (5 year degree) from University of Porto, Portugal (2000). I then came to the UK and was awarded an MSc in Clinical Nutrition & Immunology (University of Surrey Roehampton, 2001) and a PhD from Roehampton University (degree awarded by University of Surrey, 2007) (Title of Thesis: "RNA and protein turnover in premature infants with necrotising enterocolitis").

I took my first full-time lectureship position as a Lecturer in Nutrition at Kingston University (2007), and completed my Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (2009). I became a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (2015) and the Course Leader for the BSc (Hons) Nutrition (Human Nutrition) (2016). My students know me for my love of data and numbers and for my use of technology to enhance their learning and teaching experiences.
