Personal profile

Profile

Being a toxicologist, I have been working by contracts for the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) since 2002. EFSA is the keystone of European Union (EU) risk assessment regarding food and feed safety and EFSA provides independent scientific advice and clear communication on existing and emerging risks.

The EFSA’s risk assessment work is done by EFSA’s Scientific Panels, which are composed of independent experts. Each Panel is responsible for a different area of the food chain, with their work coordinated by the Scientific Committee.

I work in close contact with the Panel on food contact materials, enzymes, flavourings and processing aids (CEF), which deals with questions on the safety of use of materials in contact with food, enzymes, flavourings and processing aids. My field of expertise is toxicological evaluation of chemically defined flavourings and I work as a scientific officer, and participate in working groups meetings and the CEF Plenary. For more information about EFSA: http://www.efsa.europa.eu/

I also work in close cooperation with the Health and Consumer Protection Directorate General of the European Commission (DG SANCO), which is mandated to "ensure food and consumer goods sold in the European Union (EU) are safe, that the EU's internal market works for the benefit of consumers and that Europe helps protect and improve its citizens' health." In the context of regulatory toxicology, DG-SANCO is responsible for developing frameworks for the safety assessment and regulation of: Pesticides ; Food Additives, Flavorings & Food-Contact Material ; Nutritional Supplements ; Contaminants ; Genetically Modified Organisms ; Nanoscale Particles
