Vegard Lysne

Researcher, Clinical Nutrition

University of Bergen


I’m a clinical dietitian from Norway, currently working as a researcher at the University of Bergen. I’m also a member of the editorial board at The Norwegian Journal of Nutrition.

In my PhD project I used animal and human data to explore the effects of PPARα-activation and dietary macronutrient composition on one-carbon metabolism and B-vitamin status. My main research interests are the methodology and statistical methods used in nutritional epidemiology, and my main research tools are R and RStudio, where I do all my statistical analyses and most of my writing.

Beside work I’m a big sports fan. My main sport is volleyball, where I’m currently coaching the mens recruit team and perform scouting and statistical analyses for the mens first team at TIF Viking, using Data Volley 4. My musical preference is hard rock and related genres.
