Associate Professor in Food Studies, Nutrition and Dietetics.

Since 2016, I have been leading the INIS: International Nutrition Care Process Implementation Survey, an ambitious international study that unites researchers from 23 diverse countries. Collectively, we examine the implementation and utilization of a standardized operational framework and specialized terminology among dietitians globally.

Currently I work in collaboration with researchers from Karolinska Institute, Karolinska University Hospital and Region Sörmland in a project aiming to develop person centered tools that can be used in evaluation of dietetic interventions for patients at risk for malnutrition. Furthermore, my involvement extends to an interdisciplinary initiative delving into the ethical dimensions of dietary counseling within primary healthcare settings.

Commencing in 2023, I have the role of coordinator for the doctoral programme InSyNC, a collaboration spearheaded by Uppsala University, in conjunction with Umeå and Gothenburg Universities. I am also the coordinator for the Dietitian Programme at Uppsala University.
