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 Bikeable City project where we are the leader of a work package for evaluation. The overall aim of the project is to increase everyday physical activity through active transportation in the general population in Sweden.
