Her work has maintained focus on building a framework that observes structural prevention and social inequality, in this context Kamille has studied the connection between structures and diets. This has also been the focus for her PhD project: Characterizing food environments - public health perspectives. Using regional health profiles from the Capital Region and the North Denmark Region (2010, 2013, 2017 and when available 2021), Kamilla wants to investigate, to what extent dietary habits can be affected by physical structures in the local environment, such as: Fast food chains, grocery stores and restaurants. The data for this study is both the health profiles themselves, but paired with the previousle mentioned geographical information relevant to this study. Additionally, she incorporates sociodemographic data both on an individual level, but also on a larger regional scale.
