Associate professor at the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg (Sweden).
This project, now concluded, has produced several publications as well as several mentions by the international press, including the Washington Post and the Mail, among others. I have also written a contribution for the US Huffington Post where I wrote that the Swedish children eat a more Mediterranean diet than those living in South Europe.
During the past 3 years I have been doing research on the association between different types of dairy products and longevity in the Swedish population and, together with my former colleagues, we have shown that fermented milk products can have different health effects compared to non-fermented milk. Follow my publications in PubMed to know in what way they differ!
Besides my activities as researcher, I have also been actively engaged in teaching in higher education, both in Sweden, at the University of Gothenburg, and in Italy, at the University of Pavia. My topics include global public health, clinical nutrition, epidemiology and nutritional epidemiology, nutritional coaching.
I consider myself both an effective communicator and trainer thanks to my strong orientation to alway delivering high quality speeches and classes. I have spoken at several national and international conferences. In particular, I was invited as a speaker by Harvard University (USA) and by the multinational company Barilla. I am an active member of Toastmasters International which awarded me the certificates of “Advanced Communicator” and “Advanced Leader” which further reinforce my curriculum of speaker and leader.
