Short Bio

Daniela is a biologist and Nutritional Science Specialist at Profil. She has an academic background in basic science with special focus on molecular biology. During her PhD thesis at the German Diabetes Center in Düsseldorf she identified novel adipocyte-secreted factors and investigated their impact on the development of insulin resistance in various cell culture models.

She joined Profil in 2012 being part of the clinical operations unit. Since 2015 she is working in the Project Development team. Her particular interests are methods for the assessment of energy metabolism, including indirect calorimetry for the measurement of resting and diet-induced energy expenditure and the doubly labelled water method for the measurement of "free-living" total energy expenditure.

Trained in EU food law she is Profil’s expert to consult you on the best study design for your health claims study.
