Hi I'm Anna Cruickshank

I am a senior lecturer in the School of Culinary Arts & Food Technology. My educational background in Food Science and Engineering Technology gave me a broad base on which I established my career in the food industry in the chilled and ready-meals sector. I moved to DIT, now TU Dublin, where I lecture in the areas of Culinary Science, Food Innovation & Development and am chair of the MSc in Culinary Innovation & Food Product Development.

I am currently pursuing a PhD, my research is in aligning the food innovation curriculum with sustainable development using quadruple helix innovation systems.
