Bryony James is a Professor in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Auckland. 

She is a materials engineer, but rather than looking at metals, plastics or ceramics, her focus has been on food.

Her current research programme explores the impact of food texture on satiation - why crunchy, crispy, chewy food makes us feel fuller than  smooth food.

Her previous work has included finding novel ways to remove proteins from wine, and measuring the "snap" of good chocolate.
