Research group Public Health Nutrition
The Research Group Public Health Nutrition was established at the ZIEL - Institute for Food & Health in 2019. It evolved from the Personalized Nutrition Group at Professor Daniel's former chair of Nutritional Physiology.
Our research interest is focusing on
- assessing food consumption and dietary patterns in various population groups;
- understanding determinants of dietary behaviour;
- supporting healthy dietary choices under both conditions, food abundance as well as food scarcity.
A particular challenge is the double burden of malnutrition, i.e. the simultaneous manifestation of over- and undernutrition in individuals.
