Accolades for Alexander



Alexander Chouljenko is used to accolades. The food science graduate student placed first, not once, but twice in the Institute of Food Technologists Conference’s graduate student research paper competition. IFT has more than 17,000 members worldwide, so this is a prestigious honor for a student. Chouljenko is a rising seafood technologist and pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Food Science at Louisiana State University.  He successfully completed his master degree in Food Science and Technology from LSU. Chouljenko’s master research focused on evaluating the effects of vacuum tumbling shrimp with chitosan nanoparticles and with water-soluble chitosan on the quality of cryogenically frozen shrimp.  Chitosan, a polysaccharide derived from the processed shrimp shells, has beneficial properties
