Amber Kaiser presented her Cereal Science Ph.D. research, Hammer Roller Milling of Yellow Split Pea, at her exit seminar April 22, 2019. She is advised by Dr. Clifford Hall, III.

The purpose of Kaiser’s research is to provide data for the pulse milling industry on the quality and flow properties of milled split pea, with the specific goal of creating information on best practices for producing pulse flour. She says that she “came from an agricultural community and never lost my love of the process of grain, grain legume, and oilseed production and processing,” and liked that she could combine her food science and agriculture background. She appreciates the low student-instructor ratio in cereal science classes and the supportive environment in the cereal science program. She also says, “The faculty genuinely care about the success of their students.”

Kaiser, who is originally from Bainsville, Ontario, Canada, came to North Dakota State University with a M.S. in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the Master’s University in Santa Clarita, CA, and a M.S. in Food Science from Chapman University in Orange, CA. She was awarded a NDSU Graduate School Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship in June 2018. Her future plans include completing a M.S. in Statistics at NDSU, and a career in research and development in the food industry.

Kaiser’s graduate committee includes Hall, Dr. Frank Manthey, Dr. Bingcan Chen and Dr. Julie Garden-Robinson.
