Left the Unit in 2023
Current work and interests
Daniel is an epidemiologist interested in how our dietary habits, together with our genes and our physical and social environment, contribute to health and disease. He left the Unit in January 2023.
The human diet is a complex, dynamic and interrelated exposure and one of his main goals is to improve the methods we use to study and model dietary intake.
His main research foci are:
- methods in nutritional epidemiology
- diet in relation to risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease
- food intake biomarkers
- sustainable healthy diets
He is a co-organizer of the Global Diabetes Journal Club which an online journal club for all interested in the latest research on diabetes presented by early-career researchers from across the globe.
Daniel is also an advocate for open science and actively contributes to the Science Collective that aims to improve science by creating the technical and social environment needed to perform collaborative, open, reproducible and accessible research.
This paper on the association between replacement of red meat with other food sources of protein, is a good example of Daniel’s research outputs, and this video also describes the project.
