About me

I am a nutritionist and research assistant in the IMPACT research group led by Prof Marie Löf.

Research description

Currently I am working with the SPARK project. A project where patients diagnosed with gestational diabetes receive a smartphone app with support for healthy lifestyle habits to manage their blood glucose levels as a part of their treatment.

I also take part in the Vinnova founded projects Bikeable City and Active Travel. The overall aim of these projects is to increase everyday physical activity through active transportation. Bikeable City consists of several innovations aimed towards both adults and children and we take part by being the leaders of a work package for evaluation. Active Travel is a follow-up of a previous project (SCAMPI) and aims to increase physical activity through active transportation by changing adult professionals commuting habits with the help of a smartphone application.
