Presentation

My research focuses on consumer behaviour in the field of sustainable consumption, in particular food consumption, I am interested in marketing instruments and policy interventions for fostering sustainable consumption, e.g. product labelling, third-party certification, and other elements of the choice architecture in retail environments. My expertise covers various food-related topics, especially organic food, plant-based food and reduced meat consumption, local food, healthy eating, animal welfare standards, and sustainable food packaging.

I am a member of the Consumer and Behavioural Insights Group (CBIG) at the CBS Sustainability Centre.

Before coming to CBS, I was working at the Department of Agricultural and Food Marketing at the University of Kassel, Germany. I have a background in consumer behaviour, marketing, business administration, and policy studies.

This large project funded by Innovationsfund Denmark aims at fostering the transition towards more plant-rich diets and the avoidance of food waste among consumers in Denmark. It is a collaboration between CBS, Aarhus University, Copenhagen University, and more than ten actors from the Danish food sector.
