Dimitrios Koutoukidis

I am a dietitian with research interests in testing interventions for the management and treatment of obesity-related diseases. 

In 2017, I completed my PhD in Nutrition, Dietetics, and Behavioural Sciences at University College London funded by the UCL Grand Challenges. My work focused on developing and piloting a randomised controlled trial of a theory-based behaviour change intervention for healthy eating and physical activity. Following my PhD, I worked as a Research Associate in the ASCOT and MASCOT trials at the UCL Department of Behavioural Science and Health. 

I am currently funded by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre. I led the evaluation of two behavioural strategies aiming to improve the nutrition quality of online grocery shopping. I also led a systematic review and meta-analysis on weight loss and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and I am currently building a programme of work in this area. I am a co-investigator in a weight loss trial for the management of atrial fibrillation and I am the principal investigator of a survey on weight, QoL, and symptom burden in this population.
