Dr. Lin has a Ph.D. in the area of starch structure from National Taiwan
University. She has done Post-Doctoral fellowship focused on resistant
maltodextrin structure with Dr. Jay-lin Jane at Iowa State University and in Dr.
Hamaker's lab with starch digestion. She has worked for a number of food and
food ingredient companies related to hydrocolloids and flavor in positions
ranging from product development to international marketing. Dr. Lin's research
interests are starch digestion at the brush border area in the human body and
consequential physiology response. The short term goal is to elucidate the
relationship between starch structure and gut mucosal alpha-glucosidases
digestion. The long term goal is to control the dietary glucose generation and
delivery to the human body to benefit human health. Dr. Lin is also devoted to
the operations of Whistler Center to technical communicaions, strategic planning
and development of partnerships.
