Zoya’s theseis was focused on the “Investigation of Factors Contributing to Appetite Control and Body Composition in Fully Breastfed Term Infants”.  To summarize this research, child obesity is an increasing international concern, it is evident that fully breastfed infants control their nutritional intake and are at decreased risk of obesity and obesity related disease later in life.  A better understanding of the associations of early infant nutrition and growth with adult health requires accurate assessment of breastmilk production, milk components, energy intake and body composition in infancy.

The aim of her research is to investigate mechanisms involved in appetite control in a longitudinal study using novel methods and technology (ultrasonography, air-displacement plethysmography, bioelectrical impedance spectroscopy) developed in our laboratory to measure energy intake, feeding frequency, milk composition, gastric emptying, infant body composition and appetite hormones in breastmilk.
