Junior Researcher at CBQF and Invited Assistant Professor at ESB-UCP. PhD in Biological Sciences (National University of Rosario, 2018) and BSc in Biotechnology (National University of the Littoral, 2013). Ezequiel is a young but experienced researcher and innovator with a wide range of hard and soft skills. His career consists of 8 years in Food Sciences, Biotechnological Engineering, and Nanotechnology, particularly in the isolation, purification, analysis, and delivery of bioactive compounds for food and biomedical industries. He’s specialized in development of novel green technology for the valorisation of agri-food by-products, in a sustainable and efficient way. Likewise, his current interests align with the development of alternative matrices and ingredients for the next generation of food and nutraceutical products, and the resilience of food systems. As an active actor in the scientific field, he is an author, reviewer and editor of scientific articles in many high-impact international journals. In addition to his academic career, he is an entrepreneur and scientific communicator, committed with the social impact of Biotechnology and Circular Economy.
