Pangborn Executive Committee

Sylvie Issanchou, INRA, France

Dr. Sylvie Issanchou is deputy director of the CSGA. At INRA Dijon, she established a Sensory Laboratory and has started her career in the domain of flavour perception and relationships between volatile composition and flavour characteristics. Then, she focused her research on food preferences and eating behaviours. She has developed collaborations with economists to develop approaches combining sensory evaluation and experimental economics in order to study consumers’ trade-offs between sensory perception and external information, such as health or nutritional information. She has established a multidisciplinary research group which studies sensory and cognitive determinants of eating behaviour (preferences, choices, intake), their development during childhood and their dynamics along the life course. She coordinated the HabEat collaborative project (Determining factors and critical periods in food Habit formation and breaking in Early childhood: a multidisciplinary approach) funded within the Seventh Framework Programme. She was a member of the Knowledge Hubs DEDIPAC (DEterminants of DIet and Physical ACtivity), and of MaNuEL on Malnutrition in the Elderly. She is the author of more than 120 scientific papers in international refereed journals and of about 20 book chapters. She sits on the editorial board of Food Quality and Preference and Chemosensory Perception. She was the chairperson of the scientific and organising committees of the 4th Pangborn Sensory Science Symposium ‘The Sense Odyssey’ organised in Dijon in 2001.
