Biography Valérie Lengard Almli

I am Research Scientist at Nofima, where I have been working since 2008. My research areas are consumer behaviour and sensory science, with a main focus on the consumer. Special interests include the role of extrinsic factors on consumers’ product acceptance and food choice, children’s learning mechanisms towards a healthy and varied diet, consumer testing methodologies and consumer-driven innovation processes. I also have a strong interest 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 for a master-level course in sensory and consumer science (MVI340). I hold an MSc in Food Science and Sensometrics from ENITIAA, Nantes, France (1998) and a PhD in sensory science from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Institute for Chemistry, Biotechnology and Food Science, Ås, Norway (2012). The title of my PhD dissertation was “Consumer acceptance of innovations in traditional food. Attitudes, expectations and perception”. 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).
