Lisa is a masters student at the University of Vienna/ Austria, Department of Nutritional Sciences and is also working as a tutor in sensory science. She is affiliated to the Sensory Network Austria/Sensorik Netzwerk Österreich (SNÖ) as a student member.

In her masters thesis she is investigating dark origin and non-origin chocolates with different cocoa contents using dynamic sensory methods (TI, TDS). She collected the data partly at Callebaut chocolate factory in Wieze/Belgium using EyeQuestion©, and is continuing with data collection at the department in Vienna/Austria.

Lisa joined the E3S student group because she feels it is of crucial importance to communicate with students from other countries also working in the growing field of sensory science in order to learn from each other’s specific knowledge and to help each other whenever scientific difficulties occur resulting in better scientific outcomes. In addition, networking facilitates the communication of interesting internships, PhD and job offers within the European Union.

Iris Tauber has been working in the sensory science field since October 2012. She started in this research area during her MSc project at the Graz University of Technology (Austria) under the supervision of Professor Barbara Siegmund.  The goal of her thesis was to characterise apple juice and ciders of old apple varieties according to their flavour, and to compare them with the most significant products from plantation growing.  In order to achieve the aim, both methods from sensory science as well as instrumental analytics were applied.  Iris received her MSc in Biotechnology in 2013 and started her PhD in January 2016 in the same scientific area.
