Forskning

I am a clinical dietitian from Greece and I have been a PhD student at the department of Food, Nutrition and Dietetics since August 2016. In 2015, I completed a Master’s degree in Public Health Epidemiology at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. In my master thesis, I investigated maternal feeding practices with regard to maternal migrant background. The results of this study have been published and I set out to explore perceived child eating behaviours in a multicultural sample in Sweden.

My research project is part of the “More and Less Study” (Mer och Mindre studien, http://ki.se/clintec/information-in-english). The study is a randomised controlled trial that aims to evaluate the effectiveness of obesity treatment in children four to six years old. The project focuses on evidence-based parenting practices and my objective is to identify the role of parental feeding practices and child eating behaviours in obesity treatment. 

Thesis title: “Early obesity: Parental feeding, child eating behaviours and effects of interventions”
