Biography Valérie Lengard Almli

I am Senior Scientist at Nofima, where I have been working since 2008 and have built up experience in project management from national and international projects. My research areas are consumer behaviour and sensory science, with a main focus on the consumer. Special interests include individuality in taste sensitivity, consumers’ product acceptance and food choice, behavioral change towards a sustainable society (incl. food waste and packaging choices), children’s learning mechanisms towards a healthy and varied diet, consumer testing methodologies and consumer-driven innovation processes. I also have expertise in statistical methods, especially experimental design and multivariate data analysis (sensometrics). In addition I have a part-time position as Associate Professor at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU), where I am responsible fora master-level course in sensory and consumer science (MVI 340). I hold an MSc in Food Science and Sensometrics from ENITIAA, Nantes, France (1998) and a PhD in consumer science from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Institute for Chemistry, Biotechnology and Food Science, Ås, Norway (2012). My past professional experience includes roles as Chemometrics consultant, Product manager, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer in the statistical software group CAMO AS (1998-2008).
