Personal profile

Research interests

My ambition | My ambition is to promote wellness through developing evidence-based solutions for supporting the adoption of eating habits that enhance the health of both people and the planet. I wish one day healthy and sustainable food choices could be effortless, affordable, and attractive for all.

My interests and expertise | Within the field of nutrition I am particularly intrigued by eating behaviour, eating behaviour change, and how the food environment influences these. I have been working in multidisciplinary research teams in both national an EU-level projects that focus on health promotion and noncommunicable disease prevention, as well as the development of healthier food environments, for example, by applying the nudge approach.
