Activities / CV

Audrey Cosson has a PhD in Food Engineering from the University of Paris-Saclay. After a cursus combining food science and sensory science, she joined the Institut Paul Bocuse Research Centre at the end of 2021.

Audrey Cosson is a researcher in the Nutrition team. She is interested in research projects in the Food Science area, at the crossroads of scientific research and culinary arts (food formulation, integration of ingredients in the food matrix and their impact on sensory appreciation/evaluation, sensory engineering). In particular, she is interested in issues related to the sustainability of food, especially plant-based products, as well as the diet of the elderly, combining sensory pleasure and nutritional needs.
