Rebecca leads a program of applied research to inform, develop, test and disseminate public health initiatives to improve children’s diet quality, prevent obesity and support children’s growth, learning and development. Her research spans the life course and the range of settings where children and families live, eat, work, learn and play. Rebecca has a strong track record in behavioural nutrition, nutritional epidemiology, dietary assessment, intervention trials and evaluation research.

Prof Golley obtained a PhD qualification in child weight management research (Nutrition and Dietetics, Flinders University, 2006), and undertook postdoctoral research in the UK, and the CSIRO. She has held NHMRC ECR (2008-2012) and National Health Foundation postdoctoral fellowships (2012-2015).

Her body of research has helped transform approaches to the prevention and management of childhood obesity and improved our ability to routinely monitor and measure obesity-related behaviours.

In recent years, her work has focused on nutrition in the first years of life:




She also co-leads a Consortium with researchers from CSIRO and service providers at Nutrition Australia (Vic. Division) implementing a program of research to increase children’s vegetable consumption with a particular focus on the first years of life (https://www.vegkit.com.au/).
