David Raubenheimer is a Chair of the Department of Nutritional Ecology at the University of Sydney. His research focuses on nutritional ecology - on the discipline that studies how nutrition-related aspects of an animal's environment interact with its biology to determine health and fitness outcomes. His studies of insects, fish, birds, and a variety of mammals have helped develop a new approach to human nutrition-related problems, such as the dietary causes of obesity.
