About

I have an interdisciplinary background with education and experience in nutrition, epidemiology, and pedagogy.

My research interests cover a wide range: from various epidemiological studies that examine health outcomes of seafood, minerals, and trace elements, the elderly and nutrition, morbid obesity, dietary supplements, and health literacy as well as education research.

I teach research methods and epidemiology, among other things, something I have done since 2005. Critical thinking is a topic that concerns me especially, and I am the project manager for "Behind the Headlines" which is an interdisciplinary project that aims to teach students to critically evaluate health claims in the media. This has now been implemented as a learning design in the new interdisciplinary course “Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) in Health Care”, which approx. 1500 students will take annually. Learning critical assessment of health claims in the media can be a stepping stone to learn critical thinking and acquire critical health literacy, which is especially important to be able to maneuver in the digital landscape of health information so that one can make informed treatment choices about one's health.
