Roberta Hoskin

Senior Research Scholar


Dr. Roberta Targino Hoskin works in the lab of Dr. Marvin Moncada. Her primary research interests are focused on the research and development of novel nutrient-dense food ingredients and products using sustainable food sources, such as secondary streams of the food industry and underexploited food materials. This green-chemistry approach aims to create high-quality ingredients containing preserved phytoactive compounds at physiologically relevant concentrations. She is also interested in investigating bioactive components in fruits, vegetables and medicinal herbs, as well as the physicochemical attributes and sensory quality of new products developed with innovative plant-based ingredients.
