Junior Professorship of Public Health Nutrition
Lifestyle behaviours such as unhealthy eating are leading contributors to overweight and obesity, which in turn are associated with non-communicable diseases, premature deaths and reduced quality of life. At the Junior Professorship of Public Health Nutrition, we study a broad range of determinants of eating behaviour and test digital and choice architecture interventions to promote healthy lifestyles.
To achieve this objective, we use a broad range of methods including realistic food replicas in laboratory settings and smartphone-based Ecological Momentary Assessment for collecting data in participants’ daily life. We are also interested in the validity of (digital) eating behaviour measurement to improve data quality.
