Daisy Coyle is an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD), Conjoint Lecturer at UNSW and Research Fellow at The George Institute. She leads a program of work evaluating food policies to achieve healthier and more equitable diets. She generates evidence to support the design and development of policies that can meaningfully improve public health and she works closely with NGOs, government, and public health and academic collaborators to translate this evidence into action.

Daisy’s research interests include modelling the impact of food policies to improve diet, developing strategies to target population intakes of salt and added sugars, using sales data to monitor population diets over time and addressing socio-economic disparities in diet across Australia and globally.

Daisy received her PhD from UNSW in 2021 for her work in evaluating efforts to improve the healthiness of the food supply in Australia, with a specific focus on food reformulation. Daisy also holds a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Newcastle (First Class Honours) and a Bachelor of Science (Nutrition and Metabolism & Physiology) from the University of Sydney.
