Research areas

My research and development projects are quite broad and cross-disciplinary, but my research has generally focused on ‘people, places, and pedagogies’ in relation to health and education issues in the interface between the health, social and human sciences.

Main research areas

Currently, my main research areas are health promotion and education with a primarily focus on prevention and reduction of obesity and non-communicable diseases in a life course perspective, and development and evaluation of ‘real-world’ complex interventions. My vision is to promote health, education and well-being of children and young people. My mission is, based on thorough health promotion, education and interdisciplinary research, to develop, evaluate, and implement effective and sustainable interventions, programmes and pedagogies in different settings of children’s and young people’s everyday life, e.g. schools, green spaces, museums, families, and local communities.

Current research

At present, the various strands of my research have come together in two related multiannual cross-disciplinary research projects and intervention studies, which I head as PI or co-PI; TEACHOUT and ASPHALT.
