Immediately after graduating (way back in the 1970s) Professor Fallows worked in the Eastern Province of Zambia for a local organisation, Chipata Dzithandizeni Nutrition Group, concerned with nutrition education and other actions to promote nutritional wellbeing of the local people. The work was supported by OXFAM, NOVIB and other organisations.
On his return to the UK he completed a PhD in food and nutrition policy at the University of Bradford.
Following a post-doctoral period at the University of Bradford working on a number of food and nutrition policy projects Professor Fallows made a career shift in the late 1980s and was appointed as manager of the University’s early explorations into computer based education.
In 1992 Professor Fallows moved to the University of Luton as Reader in Educational Development.
In 2001 Professor Fallows made a second career shift and returned to his home discipline of nutrition and joined the Centre for Exercise and Nutrition Science at the University of Chester as Research Co-ordinator.
Within the Department of Clinical Sciences and Nutrition, Professor Fallows’ teaching focuses on Nutrition & Health and on Research Methods. Professor Fallows manages the research phase of the department’s MSc programmes and is a key source of advice to students on matters such as project design and research ethics.
Professor Fallows is also supervisor for a number of PhD students, including two who are based in Ireland.
