I am a nutritionist with a focus on sustainable food habits.
I became a PhD student in December 2013 and my main supervisor is Katarina Bälter, associate professor at Karolinska Institutet. My co-supervisors are Fredrik Hedenus, assistant professor at Chalmers University of Technology, and Arvid Sjölander, associate professor at Karolinska Institutet.
Before I became a PhD student I was a course leader and teacher at several universities, lecturing in nutrition, public health and sustainable eating habits. A course that is especially dear to me is "Environment and Nutrition from an Individual to a Global Perspective", which I was part of creating.
Working with Klimatmat (Swedish for ‘climate food’) I have created climate pyramids, reviewed recipes and written comments to cookbooks, as well as lectured on the environmental impact of food consumption. I have worked at the Swedish National Food Agency with the Swedish national food database and the national food survey. I have also experience as a research assistant at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Karolinska Institutet. Read more about my background in my CV (see Documents below)!
In my spare time I like to work with Baljväxtakademin (The Swedish Legume Academy), where I act as web and social media manager.
M.Sc. in nutrition from Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm University.
My research is about public health implications of sustainable food habits!
By studying the food habits of the participants in the LifeGene pilot study, I will be able to compare the nutrient intake of people with low and high climate impact. This is possible by linking all food items the participants have eaten to data of their greenhouse gas emissions, using life cycle assessment studies.
The next step will be to compare health outcomes of participants with low and high climate impact from the food.
