I offer and I am open to cooperation in various projects no matter how big or small they are, what type of projects they are and local or international.
I have almost 20 years of experience working at the university, more than 10 years of experience in science and food research, during which I have cooperated with entrepreneurs and created a number of high-quality, real products and technologies.
In general, my focus is:
- Gaining joy in life trough colourful food
- Edible insects
- Food, nutrition
- Alternatives in food
- Food sustainability, environment, resources
- Future food
If I can share my experience or if we have common interests and goals let me know about you and I would be glad to hear from you.
