My role at the ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre
I am one of the academic staff and programme director Master Food Science and technology. I teach a variety of subjects such as Biochemistry, Sensory Analysis, Baking and Confectionery Technology and New Product Development at both UG and PG levels. I supervise research studies at both levels and take part in ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre (FIC) research projects. I also deliver short courses to industry and communities.
I collaborate with other universities and food companies all of which extend my network in the food discipline. I attend conferences and support my students to take part in the conferences too which demonstrate the work we do at the University and FIC.
My role with ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre is to apply my knowledge and skills in different food projects and contribute into research. The main focuses of my research are to improve quality of the end products, formulation of free from foods and reduced sugar and fat products for specific diets, evaluate consumer acceptability of the new products.
I am a trained sensory panellist and have completed sensory science course at University of California, Davis. I use my skills and knowledge to support FIC on variety of projects.
