About me

I'm a member of professor Miia Kivipelto's group The Nordic Brain Network.

Research description

In my doctoral project I have investigated the impact of nutrition on cognitive health in normal aging and Alzheimer's disease. I'm especially interested in macronutritional composition and the impact of ketosis. My project included the planning and analysis of the clinical trial "Coffee & Cream" where we investigated the ketogenic effect of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) and coconut oil in combination with time-restricted carbohydrate intake. 

Alongside my doctoral project, I have had a leading role in the conceptualization and planning of an upcoming clinical trial: COGNIFOOD—Investigating the therapeutic potential of changing the dietary carbohydrate/fat-ratio to prevent cognitive decline and Alzheimer pathology: A pilot study

I'm interested in gene-diet interactions and the development of methods for nutritional epidemiology, based on theories for compositional data analysis and causal inference.
