Antigua and Barbuda
completed his PhD on Biotechnology at University of Barcelona (Spain), where his studies were focused on production and characterization of biosurfactants. Currently, he is a researcher at AgriaquacultureNutricional Genomic Center (CGNA) in Temuco-Chile. His main research interest is the interaction between ionic biopolymers in order to encapsulate and protect aromatic compounds (flavors). In fact, in 2013 he was granted a FONDECYT postdoctoral project (N°3140001) about encapsulation of flavors specifically related to the evaluation of multilayer emulsions with ionic biopolymerssubjected to spray drying. Additionally, he has published different papers in reputed journals.
