I’m working as a postdoctoral researcher within the fields of nutrition, one-carbon metabolism, epigenetics and metabolic syndrome to find new possibilities for preventing lifestyle diseases.

Currently, I’m focusing on early life nutrition as a way of preventing lifestyle diseases such as obesity and type 2 diabetes. My main nutritional focus area is whole grain and polyunsaturated long-chain fatty acids consumption in human dietary intervention trials.

I work at the University of Copenhagen, Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports, Section for Paediatric and International Nutrition (Profile).

This blog is intended for ideas, thoughts and sharing research. Feel free to comment and ask questions, I will try to answer them 🙂
