Maite is the Spanish deputy student representative and is studying the valorisation of food industry by-products as ingredients in the development of novel dairy foods at the Autonomous University of Madrid and Madrid’s Institute for Agriculture and Food Research as part of Mª Dolores del Castillo and Eugenio Miguel’s group. Her research focuses on using side-stream products as bioactive ingredients in the development of healthy and sustainable foods, without compromising on sensory quality and consumer acceptance. She also studies consumer behaviour towards food products developed with side-stream ingredients from food industry, as a first approach to determining whether recovered ingredients can be accepted in the food market. The overall aims are to determine whether sustainability can be a driver behind food consumption.

As a committee representative she aims to promote student networking to exchange ideas, build collaborations for future opportunities and promote teamwork as a means of personal growth within the scientific community.
