I work at the Faculty of Science, Department of Food Science in the section for Food Design and Consumer Behaviour. I work with various types of research related to human eating behavior in the area of sensory and consumer research, primarily focusing on children. Main topics are different intervention strategies to direct current food preferences in a healthier direction, and investigating how contextual factors influence both our food choices as well as amounts consumed. I also work with nudging and bahavioral design. I teach and supervise students at all academic levels.
