My background is in environmental engineering as well as nutrition and dietetics. I enjoy multi-disciplinary work, and in my Ph.D. project, I am conducting a sustainability assessment of food waste prevention measures with a focus on balanced human consumption. I am assessing all three aspects of sustainability including environmental, economic, and social by using multiple methods, such as life cycle assessment, material flow analysis, survey, and 24-h dietary recall.
I am also involved in one of the work packages of LowInFood (EU project), where the aim is to test whether educational meals can reduce food waste in school canteens.
I am a course administrator in the Food waste - current situation and future opportunities (7,5HEC) course, and I am also guest lecturing about sustainable diets.
