  • 2019-2022: PhD course in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Science, University of Catania. Research project: “Biofortification of vegetables for new consumer demand”. The aim of the PhD project is to study how to increase the nutritional qualities of vegetables as an answer to the growing market demand for certified functional products, enriched with nutraceutical substances for specific functional needs. To achieve the proposed goal, agronomic biofortification will be used. Biofortification is the process of enhancing nutrient content in the edible plant tissues with specific micronutrients. This can be a valuable agronomic practice to achieve product quality by addressing nutrient specific requirements or deficiencies in the human diet.
