About the Presenter
Lisa Te Morenga (Ngapuhi, Ngāti Whātua, Te Rarawa) is Senior Lecturer Māori Health and Nutrition in the School of Health. She is a principal investigator with Edgar Diabetes and Obesity Research at the University of Otago and an associate investigator with the Riddet Centre of Research Excellence and Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga – New Zealand's Māori Centre of Research Excellence. In 2018, Dr Te Morenga was awarded a Rutherford Discovery Fellowship from the Royal Society Te Apārangi to research dietary carbohydrates and community-based codesigned interventions to support healthier eating.
Lisa’s primary motivation is to undertake research that is of direct benefit to Māori and thus focuses on the role of nutrition in the development of preventable diseases that inflict a particularly high health burden on the Māori community, and other indigenous or minority communities, however she also does more conventional nutrition research on the role of dietary carbohydrates in human health, in particular free sugars and wholegrains.
