Research interest:

I have spent 15 multicultural years in Belgrade and Amsterdam, truly enjoying the magic of science, looking into metabolism of starvation and obesity and in between. Communicating knowledge has been my passion throughout career, and I devoted good six years to teaching subjects like medical biochemistry, DNA technology, metabolism, genomics of disease, at the University of Amsterdam. It is the same passion that has then brought me to Brussels, and to EUFIC, where I now oversee the departments of Nutrition & Health and Food Safety, as Head of Food & Health Science. In EUFIC, we provide clear, practical information on food and health, based on sound science, to both general public and health professionals. To make a difference.
