Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests include valorisation of plant materials for functional and healthy food ingredients and studying their applicability in food systems. I have expertise in dry fractionation technologies aiming at protein or fibre enrichment from plant-based raw materials and side-streams. Additionally, I have experience in modifying and studying the techno-functional properties of plant ingredients and their applicability in different food model systems as well as studying the effects of fractionation and processing on the techno-functionality.
