Anneli Lofstedt is a keen advocate for nutrition and building global healthier food systems.

She joined the University of Aberdeen in 2017 for her BBSRC EastBio- funded PhD where she assessed the nutritional value of fish and fisheries in northern Europe. This interdisciplinary project, supervised by Prof Paul Fernandes and Prof Baukje de Roos, coupled data on the nutritional composition of northeast Atlantic fish species with novel fisheries modelling techniques to strive towards maximum sustainable nutritional yields.

Anneli is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Rowett Institute and is working on a Scottish Government RESAS-funded study determining how Scotland’s production and food supply chains could be better aligned with consumption and dietary recommendations.
