Katerine Tschentscher Ejlerskov was trained in human nutrition before completing a PhD in early growth, nutrition and body composition at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Katrine was then affiliated the Technical University of Denmark and involved in conducting a national dietary survey for infants and young children as well as methodological approaches to diet registration (24 dietary recalls compared to 7-day dietary records).
Katrine started as Research Associate with the CEDAR Dietary Public Health Research programme in 2017. Working with Dr Jean Adams and Professor Martin White, Katrine will do an evaluation of supermarket commitments on checkout food. Essentially, this means analysing whether supermarkets with policies on healthy checkout areas have less checkout foods high in fat, salt and sugar (HFSS) as determined by nutrient profiling – and whether this has changed consumer purchases in a healthier direction.
