T: 021 490 - 1449
Lilit Ispiryan studied Food Chemistry at Dresden University of Technology, Germany. As part of her final thesis, she identified the chemical structure of secondary plant metabolite marker compounds, using HPLC (UHPLC)-DAD-MS/MS analysis, NMR analysis, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction, and developed a 1H-NMR-screening method for the authentication of the New Zealand Manuka honey. During and after her studies she worked at Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology as a research assistant in the field of development of Li-S battery cells.
Lilit was awarded with her PhD at the School of Food and Nutritional science under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Elke Arendt in 2021. Her research focused on the development of cereal-based functional low-FODMAP food-products. Currently, Lilit is working as a postdocotral researcher in the cereal science and beverage group under the supervision of Professor Elke Arendt.
