Laura Terragni


I work at OsloMet at the Department of Public Health Nutrition, where I teach Sociology of food consumption and qualitative methods. 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 was the leader of the first study on food security among asylum seekers in Norway and I am currently WP leader in the EU funded projekt Food2Gather.
