I am a Registered Dietitian. I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Nutrition and Dietetics from Copenhagen university in 2007.  In 2010, I studied a MSc in Public Health and Nutrition at London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. I completed my PhD in Nutritional Epidemiology at Imperial College London in 2017: Gene-diet interaction and risk of cardio-metabolic health in the Airwave Health Monitoring study – an ongoing longitudinal cohort study of the Great British police force. 

I am currently working as a Research Associate for IMI DIRECT Study investigating the influence of diet, metabolomics and risk of diabetes and metabolic health.

Areas of research interest:
