Amélie Keller holds a bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Applied Sciences in Geneva, Switzerland. In 2012, she graduated from her dual Erasmus Mundus master’s degree in Public Health from the University of Sheffield and Copenhagen University. From 2013 to 2014, Amélie has worked as a research assistant in the field of nutrition epidemiology at the University of Applied Sciences in Geneva and at the Institute of Preventive Medicine – Frederiksberg og Bispebjerg Hospital. In collaboration with the Parker Institute/Institute of Preventive Medicine and Copenhagen University, Amélie has been enrolled as a PhD student since September 2014. The PhD project examines the impact of nutrition in early life on the development of both gestational diabetes and type 2 diabetes in adulthood, using national registries and biobanks. The PhD project is supported by research grants from the Danish Diabetes Academy and Lundbeck Foundation. Aside from her PhD project, Amélie has also received a 12-month research grant from the Danish Heart Foundation to conduct a 1-year research project about substitution of sugar-sweetened beverages for milk or water and the risk of coronary heart disease together with colleagues at the Harvard School of Public Health.
