Congratulations to Amanda Sinrod on graduating with her Master’s degree!

The Barile Lab is excited to announce the graduation of Amanda Sinrod, who has earned her M.S. in Food Science! Amanda joined the Barile lab in Fall 2019 and has spent her time in the Barile lab working on the isolation and analysis of bioactives in grape pomace, a waste stream of the wine industry. Amanda’s thesis is entitled “Unlocking the health enhancing potential of grape marc through chemical and microbial analysis of its oligosaccharides and phenolic compounds.”


Among the highlights of her time as a graduate student, Amanda cites opportunities to work closely with industry partners and her experiences as the Secretary, Website Developer, and Industry Liaison for the Food Science Graduate Student Association at UC Davis.


Amanda is now working as a Senior Food Technologist at Mattson Co. The Barile Lab is incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Amanda and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors!
