Research area

I work with a) sociology of food consumption, including a focus on the social and cultural aspects of everyday eating and changes over time, b) obesity in a sociological perspective with focus on obese stigmatization in different sectors of the population, c) public perceptions of / attitudes to science, technology, and human use of animals.
