Eduardo Costa

Eduardo Costa is post-doctoral researcher in the Alchemy project at the Fermention Solutions research group (Valorization of fermentation byproducts line) at CBQF. He holds a PhD in biotechnology (with a specialization in Microbiology) and is currently involved in research focused on the study of the biological properties of fermentation byproducts focusing on exploiting potential new applications for food and cosmetic application.  Throughout his career he has been involved in several research projects focused on the development of added value products through  the extraction of added value ingredients, the demonstration of their potential health benefits and other relevant functional properties as well as their inclusion into new, added value products.
