PhD Uusitalo, Liisa
I have a master’s degree in nutrition science and doctor’s degree in epidemiology. I have been working in several projects doing research on diet, other lifestyle factors and health. I have been doing research on type 1 diabetes, antioxidants, diet of pregnant mothers and small children, use of dietary supplements, and alcohol consumption, for example. But the topic which I am most enthusiastic about are the socio-economic differences in health and health-related lifestyle factors! I hope to contribute in research that aims at improving diet and health among the less privileged people.
