Academic interests

  • Obesity, weight management, nutrition and appetite. Understanding how the body responds, at the level of appetite and metabolism, to diet-induced weight loss, both in the short- and long-term, by using different nutritional interventions.
  • Identifying the determinants of obesity and the development of preventive strategies that can assure healthy weight maintenance.
  • Factors promoting healthy and sustainable eating practices.

Courses taught

  • Epidemiology, pathophysiology, and consequences of obesity, in the master course obesity and health, at Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, NTNU, Trondheim
  • Diet, exercise, and behavioral therapy in adults with obesity, in the master course obesity and health, at Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, NTNU, Trondheim

  • 2022: Researcher in Public Health Nutrition at the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, UiO, Oslo
  • 2022: Researcher (20%) in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, at Faculty of Humanities, NTNU, Trondheim
  • 2018-2021: Postdoctoral research in the Department of Clinical and Molecular Medicine, at Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, NTNU, Trondheim
