Nov 17th, 2020 by Unravelling Science Podcast
Prof Alan Kelly, professor in the school of food and nutritional sciences at UCC is my guest on the podcast this week. Alan delves into the world of food and dairy science in this episode. We chat about the 'science is still catching up with the art of food', the importance of food processing (contrary to popular belief) and how dairy processing is like 'building lego'. He also chats about the advances in food technology due to war and exploration and his own fascinating work on 3D printing of cheese.
Alan discusses his books 'Molecules, Microbes and Meals' and 'How Scientists Communicate' and explains the 'diverse toolkit of communication skills' scientists must have to be able to explain the impact of their research. Some brilliant stories, advice and fascinating science in this episode!!
