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.
- 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.
