Research interests

My main goal is to clarify the importance of carbohydrate quality, especially sugar, on human health. My research interest includes the interaction between genetic and dietary factors for obesity, type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia and cardiovascular disease.

Ongoing projects

  • Role of sugar consumption for development of cardiometabolic risk: clarifying the long-term effect by taking genetic factors and objective markers into account (grant support: Swedish Research Council 2017-2020, Heart and Lung foundation 2017-2019, Crafoord 2016, Påhlsson 2015, ALF 2015-2018).
  • Role of genetic variation in the salivary amylase gene (AMY1) and starch intake on obesity and cardiometabolic risk (Swedish Research Council 2017-2020, Heart and Lung Foundation 2018-2019, Påhlsson 2017-2018, Crafoord 2016).
  • Dairy products and cardiovascular disease.
