About Andreas Fröberg

Andreas Fröberg has a PhD in Sport Science and is currently employed as a senior lecturer at the Department of Food and Nutrition, and Sport Science, Gothenburg University. Andreas is a certified Physical Education and Health teacher and has an MSc in Sport Science. He has previously been employed as a lecturer at the Department of Sport Science, Linnaeus University.

Andreas’ main research interest concerns physical activity and sedentary behavior among youths, as well as health promotion. In his doctoral thesis, Andreas described and critically reflected upon the experiences of developing and implementing an empowerment-based school intervention, focusing on food and physical activity, involving adolescents from a Swedish multicultural area characterized by low socioeconomic status. The intervention was continually developed and implemented, as a result of cooperation and shared decision making among researchers and the participating adolescents. He also investigated accelerometer-measured physical activity and sedentary behavior among the adolescents, and evaluated the effects of the intervention on these variables.

Andreas teaches at the Physical Education and Health teacher education program and the Health Promotion program at the Department of Food and Nutrition, and Sport Science, University of Gothenburg.
