Docent in Food, Nutrition and Culinary Science and Registered Dietitian (RD) and the Director of Doctoral Studies at the Department.
My research focuses on equal, person-centred healthcare and improvement knowledge with an emphasis on premature born babies and young children and how nutritional intake and dietary patterns are important for children's development and health. In recent years, my research area has expanded to include nutritional treatment for people with chronic diseases. The research field is primarily clinically oriented, which entails interdisciplinary collaboration with various professions.
I mainly teach in subject areas such as nutrition, clinical paediatric dietetics, and motivational interviewing technique. I also supervise theses at bachelor’s and advanced level. I was appointed as a qualified teacher in 2018 based on Umeå University's pedagogical qualification model. I currently supervise six doctoral students, main supervisor of two and co-supervisor of four.
