Paula is currently studying a multidisciplinary PhD in University College Cork. The PhD examines the sensory characteristic perception of food associated with aging and how this impacts consumer food choice, preference and nutrition status.
Paula’s PhD focuses on identifying parameters that subdivide various age cohorts’ preferences for certain foods. These include texture and flavour manipulation using novel and healthy ingredients. She has investigated age related differences in consumer sensory perception using consumer and QDA analysis. Her work also focuses on packaging solutions.
Her research interests include human nutrition, sensory science, public health science, food science and composition and food packaging.
Paula joined the E3S committee as she feels it is a great medium for sensory science students to share and gain knowledge within the various research areas, thus furthering knowledge in the sensory science field.
