1. What was your reaction when you learned you won Honored Student Award Winner?
I was very excited and really enjoyed winning the award. I want to express my sincere thanks to the AOCS Award committee, for their recognition of my hard work and achievement.
2. Can you tell us about your current research?
My current research works focus on the influences of fry oil’s fatty acid profile on the flavor of French fries.
My project is thus designed to:
1) develop analytical methods for determining volatile compounds of fried food
2) investigate the effect of oil types and frying time on the flavor compounds in frying oils
3) and study the formation mechanisms of some off-flavor compounds and find some method to control them.
