Research
My research profile can be briefly described as: public health informatics, nutritional epidemiology, odontology, public health and measurement errors in nutritional research. The research in the latter field concerns relative validity, i.e. comparing various methods with each other as well as comparing dietary data from dietary assessment methods with dietary data from biological markers for food intake. Biological markers can be obtained from body fluids, such as blood and urine; therefore, dietary intake data is not dependent on the information from any one person. In my research, I have gone from biochemistry to health communication via nutritional epidemiology.
