In Clinical Prevention Research at Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen, our strategic focus is on identifying high-risk individuals in an easy and feasible way using different clinical characteristics and biomarkers. We seek to understand the underlying biological mechanisms driving obesity, hyperglycemia, and cardiovascular risk. Based on knowledge about the target groups, incl. their potential barriers or motivation for lifestyle changes, we design, develop, and test feasible interventions with the aim of improving health markers and reducing the overall risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease in the target populations.
My current research within the field of appetite regulation and food reward include the development and evaluation of a methodology for measuring explicit and implicit aspects of food reward. Moreover, we are conducting a randomized controlled trial on time-restricted eating in people at high-risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
