Thanasis Tektonidis


I joined the University of Hertfordshire as a full-time Lecturer in Nutrition & Dietetics in September 2020, after employment as an Associate Lecturer & Researcher at Oxford Brookes University. I hold: BSc (Hons) in Nutrition & Dietetics (Greece), MSc in Human Nutrition (Sweden) with “distinction” & PhD in Nutrition (UK) with main focus on nutritional epidemiology, exploring the relationship of diet quality over adulthood and later life walking speed, indicating overall functioning.

Currently, I work within the School of Life and Medical Sciences, contributing to both BSc(Hons) Nutrition & BSc(Hons) Dietetics courses. I lead & teach L4 - Professional Practice in Nutrition, two L6 - Public Health Nutrition modules and L6 - Nutrition Research. I also contribute to several Level 4 and Level 5 modules within the programme.

I supervise BSc, MSc & co-supervise PhD students. Currently, I have 0.1 FTE research allocation, which is invested in applying for small grants and establishing internal and external research collaborations.

My current roles also include: Admissions Co-Tutor & Study Year Abroad Tutor for the programme, working closely with Marketing Team to enhance the programme’s external profile

I am a registered Nutritionist (RNutr) and Dietitian (RD) in Greece, and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and I am in the process of registering with the AfN, the HCPC.

My goal is to provide evidence-based knowledge and critical analysis skills so as to create a vibrant and innovative next generation of nutritionists and dietitians.
