Health benefits of dietary polyphenols

Current PhD student in the Kroon group, researching the microbial metabolism of anthocyanins (a class of polyphenol responsible for pigmenting fruit and vegetables from red to purple such as strawberries and blueberries). There is substantial evidence that anthocyanins promote good cardiovascular health, my work focuses on looking at how this may be attributed to an individual’s metabolism of anthocyanins, in relation to their gut microbiota.

Prior to joining the Kroon group I graduated from the University of East Anglia with a 1st Class degree in Biological Sciences.
