Sanchez receives top student research award from sensory professionals
Karolina Sanchez, a master's student in the sensory and consumer behavior program in the human nutrition department, received the Elaine Skinner award at the recent Society of Sensory Professional meeting for best student presentation on applied sensory research.
Her paper was "How does Product Preparation Affect Sensory Properties? An example with Coffee." She worked with Edgar Chambers, university distinguished professor in the College of Human Ecology.
This is one of only three student awards given every other year by the major international professional society in sensory analysis.
Sanchez currently is on an internship at Anheuser Busch in St. Louis, Missouri.
