Seligman Fellow Eliana Fissore was born and grew up in Castelar, Buenos Aires, Argentina. She attended Morón University where she studied Food Engineering. It was here that Eliana also discovered a particular interest in scientific research. This prompted her to complete two internships at technology laboratories in Buenos Aires in order to gain experience in the field.
In 2004, she was granted a Post-Graduate Fellowship from the Argentinean Agency of Scientific and Technological Promotion (ANPCyT) and started her doctoral studies at the Industries Department of Buenos Aires University under the supervision of Dr Lia Gerschenson and Dr Ana M. Rojas.
In 2007 she won a Doctoral Fellowship from the Argentinean Council of Scientific and Technical Research (CONICET). After obtaining her PhD in 2009, she was awarded a Post-Doctoral Fellowship from the Argentinean Council of Scientific and Technical Research. Her doctoral studies focused on the development of less polluting methods to extract pectin by using by-products of industrial processing.
As a result of her research, Eliana has two papers published in international books, six papers published in international journals, one patent under revision and several conference proceedings.
Currently, she is in North Wales, working on her Seligman Fellowship project in the Centre for Water Soluble Polymers at Glyndwr University under the supervision of Prof Peter A Williams.
Since 2005, Eliana has been a graduate teaching assistant for different Food Engineering courses at Morón University. In her spare time, Eliana enjoys travelling and outdoor activities.
