From Brazil to Saskatchewan: another inspiring story!
Patricia Tozatti is a trailblazing food engineer from Guarapuava in the southern state of Parana of Brazil. She jumped straight into a PhD after her undergraduate degree and a stint in the food industry. Funded by the government of Brazil through the Science without Borders scholarship program, Patricia is examining wheat and baking quality in her PhD in Food and Bioproduct Science. Agriculture has always been close to Patricia’s heart – she comes from a family of grain farmers. Patricia is fulfilling her own dreams and those of her parents by coming to University of Saskatchewan – her father dreamt of studying abroad but didn’t have the necessary support.
