Her research focused on elucidating the role of macronutrients, with special emphasis on dietary proteins, and foods and functional foods, with special interest in milk and dairy products, in satiety and food intake regulation, glucose homeostasis and metabolic control in health and diseases.
My research activities aim at elucidating the role of the manipulation of meal macronutrient and food composition in the regulation of satiety, satiety-related hormones, cell culture and food intake in health and diseases.
