Personlig profil

Information om forskning och undervisning

My research concerns biotechnologies applied to agriculture and food environment, with a special focus on the use of microbial metabolism to achieve nutritional and technological improvement of food, especially plant-based. My activities encompass the study of food microbiota and selection of starters to produce typical or innovative foods, synthesis of biogenic compounds, and degradation of anti-nutritional factors. Sustainable bio-production and sustainable use of natural resources have a strong impact on the direction of my research.
