Research Interests

Sandi is interested in researching the developmental origin of metabolic syndrome and diabetes in children focusing on the lipid fraction of serum. In an era of big data, Sandi’s goal is to make fatty acids profiling feasible on a large-scale of thousands of samples using multiplexed, non-aqueous capillary electrophoresis-mass spectrometry (MSI-NACE-MS) and consequently apply the newly developed method on samples from different birth cohorts in search for food-specific and disease-specific biomarkers for risk-assessment and prognosis of metabolic syndrome in-utero as well as in early life of young boys and girls.
