I hold a PhD in Flavour Chemistry that I obtained while working in Professor Schieberle’s group at the Food Chemistry department of the Technical University Munich (Germany). In 2011 I moved to Australia to join the Australian Wine Research Institute where I worked as a Research Scientist focussing on the investigation of wine taints as smoke taint, oxidation and reduction, as well as on the characterisation of Shiraz aroma.

In 2014, I moved to the UK to join Cara Technology as a Senior Flavour Chemist, and I am currently responsible for the analytical quality control of the AROXA flavour standards, and for the development and validation of GC, GC/MS and GC/O methods.
