Research interests

I am interested in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance and the metabolic syndrome and the role of dietary functional lipids in the prevention and treatment of these conditions.


Dr Albert graduated in medicine from the University of Auckland School of Medicine in 2003 and began clinical work in Rotorua and later Whangarei before returning to Auckland. He has completed basic paediatric training and is in the process of specializing in Paediatric Endocrinology. As part of this he is working towards a PhD, the title of which is ‘Metabolic effects of Omega-3’.
