The title of a docent in the field of nutrition, specialization in lipid metabolism


I am an authorized clinical nutritionist, and docent in nutrition, with specialization in lipid metabolism working at the Institute of Public Health and Clinical Nutrition. I have an over 10 years’ experience of randomized controlled clinical trials studying health effects of diet. Last years I have focused on gene-diet interactions related to fatty acid metabolism and prevention of type 2 diabetes. I also have an active role in the Fatty Acids and Outcomes Research Consortium, which goal is to understand the relationships between fatty acids from our diet and metabolic processes on chronic disease outcomes.
