I am Maria Rosaria Giuffrè; I was born on 20/12/1993 in Reggio Calabria (RC).

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Food Technology at the University of Naples Federico II and a Master’s degree in Food Science and Technology at the University of Florence.

During my Bachelor’s degree, I also participated in the Erasmus+ for Studies Prog. at the “École Supérieure des agricultures”of Angers-Loire (FR).

After my Master’s degree I took part in the Erasmus+ Traineeship Prog. at the University of Barcelona (SP) where I carried out a qualitative survey on the strategies to strengthen the local economy of agroecological products.

Currently I am a PhD Student in Sustainable Management of Agricultural, Forestry and Food Resources at the SensoryLab.

Research interests and PhD project

My main research interests deal with the development of new methodologies to investigate consumers liking, emotions and sensory perception during the experience of personal care products.

My PhD Project is focused on the sensory-emotional profile of new products for personal care characterized by greater environmental sustainabiliy to promote the ecological transition.
