“You are what you eat” (Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin). From production to
consumption, our foods go through processing, ranging from peeling and cutting
to chemical modification and preservation. However, many databases, even from
the United States Department of Agriculture, lack information on the processes
that each food has been through before distribution to the customer. Hence, we
aim to create a map of processes that had been applied in the production of food
by extracting knowledge from various sources such as the Title 21 of the Code of
Federal Regulations.


The intern will work with experts in the Center for Complex Networks Research
to understand and quantify the levels of food processing. This internship is a part
of the Foodome project with the goal of understanding the relationship between
food and the onset of diseases. The ideal intern will be proficient in python, have
experience with NLP, and display an unquenchable thirst for knowledge.
Experience with text mining and data science is preferred.
