Food and health

My research concerns about the health effects of foods, especially the low grade inflammation. In addition, I have studied the effect of psychological stress and recovery on the metabolism and their relations to food and eating behaviour. I am currently with my research group establishing two new research platforms to complement the already existing expertise at our department, namely the platforms for the studying the dietary proteins and their health effects and together with Prof Hani El-NEzami aa platform studying the gut function and microbiota. Also via establishing these platforms my aim is to understand more on the underlying mechanisms of the effects of foods, their components and structures. With the latter I have collaborated for several years with the VTT food technologists.
