Elizabeth Carvajal-Millan, PhD
Research Scientist, Research Center for Food and Development (CIAD), Hermosillo, Mexico

Elizabeth Carvajal-Millan, PhD, is a Research Scientist at the Research Center for Food and Development (CIAD) in Hermosillo, Mexico, since 2005. She obtained her PhD in France at Ecole Nationale Supérieure Agronomique à Montpellier (ENSAM), her MSc degree at CIAD, and undergraduate degree at the University of Sonora in Mexico. Her research interests are focused on biopolymers, mainly in the extraction and characterization of high-value-added polysaccharides from co-products recovered from the food industry and agriculture, especially ferulated arabinoxylans. In particular, Dr. Carvajal-Millan studies covalent arabinoxylans gels as functional systems for the food and pharmaceutical industries. Globally, Dr. Carvajal-Millan is a pioneer in in vitro and in vivo studies on covalent arabinoxylans gels as carriers for oral insulin focused on the treatment of diabetes type 1. She has published 57 refereed papers, 23 chapters in books, over 80 conference presentations, and one patent registered, with two more submitted.
