Personal profile

Research areas

Davide Giacalone is currently Associate Professor in Consumer Product Testing and Optimization at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Southern Denmark. Holding a PhD in sensory science from the University of Copenhagen, his research centers on consumers’ perceptions and behavior towards everyday products, primarily within food and other fast-moving consumer goods, and more recently durable products (e.g, audio products and consumer electronics).

Special areas of proficiency include methodological research on perceptual product tests with consumers, and the application of sensory methods to product development in research and industry. He is also very interested in sensometrics (i.e., statistical modeling of sensory and consumer data), in particular multivariate methods to relate instrumental, perceptual and affective product evaluations.

Davide currently sits on the editorial board of Food Quality and Preference, is member of the scientific committee for both the Pangborn Sensory Science Symposium and the European Sensory and Consumer Research Conference, and he is a frequent contributor to international conferences on sensory science, product development, and consumer research worldwide.
