Research Interest: My ultimate research goal is to discover the role of functional foods in health and diseases. There is growing evidence supporting the role of diet and food components during pregnancy and lactation on development of obesity and chronic diseases in offspring. Therefore, my particular interest is to understand how food components and primarily proteins and peptides consumed during pregnancy and lactation can influence risk of obesity and chronic diseases in next generation. Moreover, factors affecting food intake and appetite as key components in prevention and treatment of obesity and its comorbidities are my particular research interest.
