Researcher Activities

As researcher, he has expertise in molecular biology and genetic epidemiology and his research activity focuses in the field of Food & Health.

He is the principal investigator in the European project Stance4Health: “Smart Technologies for personAlised Nutrition and Consumer Engagement” Call Identifier H2020-SFS-2018-2020, Grant agreement no: 816303. The overall objective of this project is to develop a complete Smart Personalised Nutrition (SPN) service based on the use of mobile technologies as well as tailored food production that will optimize gut microbiota activity and long-term consumer engagement.

He is fully involved in large European Studies: IFamily: “Determinants of eating behaviour in European children, adolescents and their parents” (Call: FP7-KBBE-2010-4] Contract no: 266044), and IDEFICS: “Identification and prevention of Dietary- and lifestyle-induced health EFfects In Children and infantS” (European Community’s Sixth Framework Programme FOOD-CT-2006-016181-2).
