    Research interests

    I am currently responsible for three research projects:

    • Life-course changes in body fatness and subsequent cancer risk (2022-2025)
    • Repeated measurements of organic pollutants, body weight, lipids and hormons in realtion to risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus. (2016-)
    • Teenage pregnancies in the republic of Georgia (2021-2024)

    These projects are based on questionnaire data and blood samples from the Norwegian Women and Cancer study, the Tromsø study and the Georgian national birth registry.

    I am also involved in several other  research projects in related fields.

     I am the main supervisor of 2 PhD-students, 1 postdoc and co-supervisor of 3 PhD-students.

     

    Teaching

    I teach epidemiology and nutritional epidemiology on the bachelor program in Nutrition and on the Master program in Clinical Nutrition.
