Project Title:

Food environments for planetary health

Research interests:

My interests lie in healthy and sustainable diets and commercial determinants of health. My master’s thesis was a quasi-experimental study on the effects of tiered soft drinks taxes in Europe on the sugar content of soft drinks. My PhD research currently focuses on the public debate on the taxation of meat for health, sustainability and animal welfare reasons (qualitative framing analysis). Subsequently, I will conduct a scoping review and bibliographic network analysis on research about planetary health nutrition on and from Germany.
