Arbeitsgruppe 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.
