Anika Knüppel is a nutritional epidemiologist with a profound interest in relationships between diet, lifestyle, psychosocial factors and non-communicable diseases.
At the Cancer Epidemiology Unit Anika will work as part of the Wellcome Trust funded LEAP (Livestock, Environment and People) project. The project focusses on associations between the intake of animal products and physical health. For this, Anika will work with data from large scale prospective cohort studies such as the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) and UK Biobank.
Anika joined the Cancer Epidemiology Unit in 2018 after receiving her PhD in Epidemiology & Public Health from University College London (UCL). There she worked with data from the London-based Whitehall II cohort study investigating links between diet, adiposity and mental health. She holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Nutritional Sciences from Martin Luther University, Germany.
