Forskningsinteresser

Jeg interesserer mig primært for de forandringsprocesser på individ og samfundsniveau, der knytter sig til individets håndtering af mad, spisning og sundhedsrelaterede praksis. I mit ph.d. forløb har jeg forsket i forskellige aspekter af kostforandring blandt folk der gerne vil tabe sig. Min forskning omhandler også viden og praksis omkring småbørnsmad blandt forældre i Danmark med både etnisk majoritets og minoritetsbaggrund. Mit nuværende forskningsfokus er på hvordan danskere håndterer nedskæringer på deres madbudgetter, samt på hvad det betyder for ernæringsmæssig sundhed og bæredygtigt madforbrug. Andre interesser omhandler udvikling af kvalitative metoder i forskning og innovative metoder til undervisning.

 

Research interests

Main research interests are processes of identity formation in late-modern societies and processes of social change and institutional integration in relation to health and environmental challenges. Focus in PhD study was on processes of change related to dietary practices among people with weight concerns. Recent research projects include parent's practices and values related to the feeding of their young children with a focus on ethnic minorities. Present research deals with treatment and prevention of childhood overweight in the Danish healt system. Another project investigates changes of food consumption patterns induced by restrictions on food budgets in private households and the implications for nutritional health and environmental sustainability. Interests also include development of qualitative research methodology.

Aktuel forskning

Current research

Currently, I am the project leader and coordinator of two research projects. One project entitled "Healthy Weight Behaviour for Toddlers in Families of Diverse Ethnic Background" focuses on the possibilities of treating children at risk of obesity in the Danish health care system. This includes the investigation of how health professionals approach the issue of prevention and treatment of overweight children, and how advice from the GPs is perceived and integrated into family practices in the context of everyday life. The other project entitled "Food in Turbulent Times" aims at developing a monitoring tool to measure the present and future implications of constraints on the house hold food budget on healthy eating, environmental sustainability and life quality in the Danish population.
