Paulina Nowicka, PhD, is an Assistant Research Professor at the Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. Her research aims to identify the most important familial and sociocultural drivers of obesity early in life, and to investigate how lifestyle patterns develop across generations. Her research is inspired by experiences from the Childhood Obesity Unit in Malmö, Sweden, where she worked for almost a decade as a clinician using a treatment approach based on family therapy. Her postdoctoral education has included research at Yale University, University of Oregon and University of Oxford. In Karolinska Institutet she leads a comprehensive randomized controlled trial, the More and Less Study, aiming to test different treatment options for preschoolers with obesity. She is the scientific secretary for the Swedish Association for the Study of Obesity (SFO).
