I am a Senior lecturer in nursing and has a Master of science in biomedicine. In my research I study early growt, risk factors for overweight and obesity and associated diseases in preschool children. In this field I have also studied the measures waist-to-height ratio and body mass index as instruments in the detection of overweight, obesity and abdominal adiposity in preschool children. I also take part in a research project including a cohort study where we study sleep and well-being in children with ADHD from a long-term perspective. Besides that I am in the early process of a project were we will study early nutrition and feeding patterns in children and adolescents.
