About this event

Daiva Nielson, Ph.D., Assistant professor, School of Human Nutrition, Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, McGill University.

Chercheuse à l’INAF – Axe 3

Title: Deconstructing the complexity of human eating behaviour: evaluating links between genomics, sensory perception, and retail exposures

Dr. Daiva Nielsen is an Assistant Professor in the School of Human Nutrition and Scientific Director of the Mary Emily Clinical Nutrition Research Unit at McGill University. Her research program evaluates gene-environment interactions on nutrition and health outcomes, with a specific focus on neurobehavioural aspects of eating including food reward and sensory perception. Dr. Nielsen’s lab was the first to geotemporally link population biobank data with in-store retail food environment data to study relationships between the retail food environment, diet, genetics, and health. Her lab also engages in applied research activities to advance nutrition research and practice, such as through the development of automated methods to organize large-scale uncategorized dietary intake data and use of genetic testing for personalized nutrition. Her research has been funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, New Frontiers in Research Fund, Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé, and the Banting Research Foundation.
