Claudia Rorandelli (born in Florence on 25/07/1995) holds a Bachelor’s degree in Food Technology and a Master’s degree in Food Science and Technology (110/110 cum laude) both from the University of Florence. Currently she is a PhD research fellow at the SensoryLab researching on food preferences, taste acuity and health.
Her main research interests deal with the study of consumers food preferences and acceptability, taste acuity and health. In her PhD project she collaborates with some hospitals in the Florence area, collecting data with cancer patients in order to study the effect of chemotherapy treatment on taste, smell and food preferences. Information collected will be useful to develop ad hoc food products that could contribute to the establishment of a healthy diet.
