Dr. Anna FOGEL
Dr. Anna Fogel graduated from the University of Sunderland with a BSc in Psychology and from Bielefeld University with MSc in Systems Biology of Brain and Behaviour. In 2015 she completed her PhD in Applied Developmental Psychology, which was examining fruit and vegetable intake in children, toddlers and babies. Specifically, she examined how various intrinsic and extrinsic factors affect intake of fruit and vegetables which differ in sensory properties, such as sweetness, bitterness and astringency. She has looked at the effects of individual sensory sensitivity, effects of otitis media infections on intake, neophobia and density of fungiform papillae, alongside parental feeding practices and home environment.
As a Research Fellow at SICS she is investigating eating behaviours of children who participated in the GUSTO trial. She is particularly focused on the microstructure of eating and how this relates to the overall energy consumed by the child, choice of foods, children’s body composition and mother’s perception of the child’s eating behaviours.
