Research interests

My main research focus is to understand:
- the implications of bariatric surgery on dietary intake and nutritional status of morbid obese patients.
- the main influencing factors in the development and treatment of disease and age related malnutrition.
Furthermore I am interested in education and policy development in the field of obesity, diabetes and clinical nutrition.
