From 2008 to 2010 he worked as a postdoctoral Research Associate in University of Arizona at the College of Pharmacy and from 2010 to 2012 he was Research Associate Professor in University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Then he became the NMR Director in Pennsylvania State University and in August 2016 he joined the department of Food Science and Technology at The Ohio State University as Assistant Professor. As an NMR spectroscopist and chemist he has a broad background in multinuclear and multidimensional NMR spectroscopy, as well as in analytical chemistry and metabolomics. He specifically focus on compound identification and analysis of foods and other complex matrices, such as biofluids and plant extracts. He has developed novel and powerful NMR methodologies for the evaluation and the quality assessment of food products and for the structure elucidation of plant based bioactive compounds. Emmanuel is also considered a very recognized NMR educator.Research Interests: My research interests include applications of liquid and solid state NMR Spectroscopy in Food Science, Structure Determination and Metabolomics. I am developing analytical tools to determine the authenticity of foods and I will apply novel methodologies to develop agronomic and processing strategies to improve the nutritional value of foods. In addition, I will use a multi-disciplinary research approach that combines spectroscopy, metabolomics, gene expression profiles and microbial analysis to investigate the interaction between nutrition and gut microbiota and how this is related to obesity.
