Ciarán Forde, National University of Singapore, Singapore
Dr. Ciarán Forde is Principal Investigator in Sensory Nutritional Science at the Singapore Institute for Clinical Sciences and holds a joint appointment with the National University of Singapore as Associate Professor in the Department of Physiology. Dr. Forde joined the Clinical Nutrition Research Centre in 2015 to set up the ‘Sensory and Ingestive Behaviour’ lab which seeks to understand how sensory factors influence calorie selection and eating behaviour, and through this impact energy intake and body composition. Dr. Forde’s team also conducts research on children’s eating behaviours through the Growing up in Singapore to Healthier outcomes (GUSTO) cohort, and in collaboration with local pre-schools. The aim is to understand how sensory factors influence energy selection and intake within and across meals, and the development of eating behaviours in childhood.
Dr. Forde has previously spent over 11 years in several food research roles, most recently for five years as Senior Research Scientist at the Nestlé Research Centre in Lausanne, Switzerland leading research on the sensory and cognitive factors that influence food intake. He holds a BSc. in Food Chemistry and PhD. in Sensory Science, from the Department of Nutrition in University College Cork in Ireland.
