My background is within Animal Science with special emphasis on pig nutrition and health. My current research is centered around minerals in pig nutrition in relation to physiological needs and the environment. I am also involved in projects related to effects of dietary carbohydrates and protein on gut health in pigs and development of a new pig model for large intestinal inflammatory induced diarrhea in piglets.

Earlier in my carreer I  had special interests in bioactives in cow´s milk and how these bioactives (fatty acids and hormones) potentially affect consumer health in terms of breast cancer.

My PhD work focussed on the effects of milk estrogens of plant and endogenous origin on human breast cancer studied both in in vitro systems and in rodent models. The interest in screening the biological effects of milk estrogens is ongoing.
