Sharon Kirkpatrick, PhD, RD
University of Waterloo School of Public Health and Health Systems
Dr. Sharon Kirkpatrick leads a public health nutrition research program in the School of Public Health Sciences at the University of Waterloo in Canada. Her research primarily focuses on understanding eating patterns in populations and influences on these patterns, using a systems thinking lens to consider the array of factors at play. Much of her work is aimed at improving dietary assessment methodologies to foster a robust evidence base on the influence of eating patterns on human and planetary health and the impact of interventions on intake. In collaboration with researchers at the National Cancer Institute, she has contributed to the development of freely-available and highly-accessed resources for researchers, including an online dietary assessment primer and a web-based dietary assessment tool.
