Jordan Beaumont

Jordan Beaumont RNutr (Public Health), FHEA

Lecturer


Summary

I am a Registered Nutritionist with specialism in public health, and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I teach across a range of food and nutrition modules within the Department of Service Sector Management, and supervise masters dissertation projects. My research focusses on obesity and weight management, and explores novel interventions for weight management, the perceptions of health and obesity, and eating behaviours and appetite control. I have recently submitted my PhD thesis which explored the use of non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques to modulate eating behaviours. Before studying for my doctorate, I worked as a freelance nutritionist with specialism in weight management. I joined Hallam as an Associate Lecturer in March 2021, and was made full Lecturer within the Food and Nutrition group in August 2022.
