I am passionate about food and the science of food and am keen to share this with others. I have 15 years experience in academia and a keen interest in learning and teaching, with a focus on enhancing the student experience. My research interests include a focus on both learning and teaching and compositional analysis of food to monitor effects of various processing techniques.
