Updated: May 4

Dear Gemini families,


Just a small update from the Gemini team, we are pleased to announce that in January 2020, we welcomed two new PhD students, Muftah and Lisa.

The Gemini Team (From left to right; Lisa, Ali, Andrea, Alice, Clare & Muftah)

Lisa and Muftah are both really excited to be a part of our group and are looking forward to contributing to the Gemini study during their time at University College London.


We arranged a little Q&A session with Lisa and Muftah so they could share some information about themselves to allow you to get to know them 😊


Muftah Dagali


Question 1: What has your previous research focused on?


Answer: "My early research was focused on neuroscience. However, more recently my research focused primarily on nutrition during childhood development."


Question 2: What (roughly) does your current research focus on?


Answer: "My current research focuses on understanding the role of gene-environment interaction on weight/BMI stratified by Energy Density."


Question 3: Is there anything that you would like to say to the Gemini study participants?


Answer: "I would like to thank you for your vital role in improving human knowledge about childhood development. I am very lucky and excited to be part of the Gemini team; you made this possible. THANK YOU"

Question 1: What has your previous research focused on?


Answer: "My early background is in sport science, but my most recent research has focused on human nutrition and behavioural weight management interventions."

Question 2: What (roughly) does your current research focus on?


Answer: "I am researching why some people like and eat more foods and drinks that contain sweeteners, and whether eating more foods and drinks containing sweeteners might in turn influence our food preferences and our growth"

Question 3: Is there anything that you would like to say to the Gemini study participants?


Answer: "Thank you for your continued participation and support! Without you, I would not be involved in such an interesting study."
