What drives you?
Passion for food with a desire to make a positive impact for the future, combine with experience in printing
What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
Material research of printable plant based proteins
What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
Allowing for more diverse printing applications and a move to plant base future
What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
Development in food printing will come from a strong combination of science (mostly academia), technology (startups and established companies), and visionaries that will cultivate and grow the strategic direction for the field. Until these forces will emerge more clearly, insufficient funds and focus will be directed to this major challenge.
What do you hope people to learn from your presentation?
That some of the basic principles and assumptions about 3d food printing need to be different.
