Leah Coles, PhD, holds a Bachelor of Technology (Hons) in Food Technology from Massey University, New Zealand, and completed her PhD in Human Nutrition at the Riddet Institute, Massey University, New Zealand. She is presently a Research Fellow in the Nutritional Interventions Lab at Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, Melbourne, Australia. Her current research involves clinical trials focused on functional foods and weight loss, particularly in relation to diabetes and cardiovascular disease. She has also published several peer-reviewed articles in the area of in vitro and in vivo (animal and human) digestibility studies and linked these with mathematical models to predict the available energy (ATP) content of foods.
