Dr. Jackson receives the 2015-15 Fulbright Scholar award to Antigua and Barbuda. She will be teaching a course on “Communication Chemistry through Local Cuisine” at  Antigua State College, St. John’s Antigua for a period of 6 months starting in January 2016. Students will gain an understanding of many of the chemical, physical and biological concepts involved in taste, cooking and other culinary experiences through lectures and hands-on activities. This very innovative program will focus on aspects relating to the composition and structure of food, the transformations associated with cooking, and the sensory experiences in eating.
