I study interactions between diet, the gut microbiome and metabolome in the context of health and nutrition. This includes studies investigating the effects of different dietary regimes (a New Nordic diet, a wholegrain diet, a low-gluten diet, and a Mediterranean diet) as well as dietary or xenobiotic components (gliadin, haptocorrin, antibiotics, pesticides) on the gut microbiome and metabolome.

Primære forskningsområder

My aim is to apply metabolomics in the field of human gut microbiota research to identify gut microbial metabolites and understand their importance in health and disease. 
Current research projects:
  • Interactions between diet and gut microbia and the potential of modulating these interactions for the prevention of metabolic dysfunction and cardiovascular complications in humans (DINAMIC)
  • The effects of a low-gluten diet on healthy adults (3G center)
  • Bifidobacteria and the development of the immune system early in life (Copenhagen Infant Gut)
  • Microbial tryptophan metabolites in health and disease
  • A personal microbiome-dependent glucose response (MIGLUCOSE)
