My background is within Animal Science with special emphasis on nutrition and health. My current research is centered around dietary carbohydrates (prebiotics) and protein and their impact on gut and metabolic health in humans, using animals (pigs and rats) and cells as model systems.

I also have 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.
