Louis A. Colaruotolo is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Guelph Department of Food Science studying how structure impacts the shelf life of novel food-based materials in efforts to make a more sustainable and equitable food system for the future. Louis started his educational journey in culinary trade school, and driven by a mixture of curiosity, luck, and stubbornness, he is currently working on his Ph.D.. In addition to his research, Louis is an active science communicator, hosting a radio show “We Know Some Stuff” that aims to make science a conversation rather than a lesson or lecture.
