Angeliki's research focuses on understanding the factors that influence dietary behaviour and developing strategies to improve dietary habits to prevent chronic disease.
Her specialist area of research is the exploration of traditional diets (definition, assessment of adherence, barriers and facilitators to adherence, acceptability, promotion, effect on chronic disease risk factors and incidence), by integrating theoretical models of behaviour change into interventions.
Angeliki's research expands to the investigation of services for older and vulnerable adults, particularly Meals on Wheels and community meals. This involves qualitatively exploring views and experiences of service users and providers and evaluating effects of the service on nutritional, health and social care outcomes.
