Improving the health impact of wheat starch


I first became interested in food science while studying food technology and nutrition. I specialized in human physiology during my MSc at Wageningen University. I then joined the Cassavita project aimed to study the effect of provitamin A biofortified cassava on vitamin A status in Kenyan children and I became interested in staple foods contribution to the diet to fight malnutrition in developed and developing countries.

My work focuses on developing food products with low glycemic index and a beneficial effect on human health using genomic tools. This is a PhD project supervised by Dr Brittany Hazard at the Quadram Institute and by Dr Cristobal Uauy at the John Innes Centre.
