Hacking Eating Tracking – Dr Suzanne Higgs gives a talk about challenges and methodological limitations in the field of Human Eating Behavior


Eating behavior has a major influence on food intake, nutrition and overall health, yet what we know and understand about it is still limited. Importantly, most methods that we use nowadays to study how humans eat are indirect and rely on self-report.

Hacking Eating Tracking is seeking innovative methods and tools that can help quantify and objectively assess human eating behavior.

The event will be held at the Northwest building of Harvard University, Sept 18-20, 2015 and Dr Suzanne Higgs will give a talk about existing challenges to objectively measure human eating behavior and use quantified eating behavior data in the context of laboratory studies.
