Her research focuses on foods, nutrition and the life cycle, with special interest on stress (ageing, obesity and inflammation), the “farm to fork to society” nexus and its implications for all stakeholders in community, industry and clinical settings.
Her group’s work has contributed toward establishing innovative solutions to explore the contribution of diet on lifelong health, including near-market research (reformulated meals, novel ingredients, biomarker development) to answer challenges to the nutritional status.
