Laura Terragni


I work at HiOA at the Department of Public Health Nutrition, where I teach Sociology of food consumption and qualitative methods. This year I have developed a new course on "Food, Migration and health". My main research interests include changes in food habits after migration, food security and nutrition communication towards minorities. I am also interested in how people cope with dietary changes in daily life and in ethical food consumption. I long experience with international research project. I’m currently leading the first study on food security among asylum seekers in Norway.
