PhD in Plant Protein Structural Biochemistry
BsC in Chemical Engineering
Research interests & activities
Science interests: structural and physical biochemistry of bio-macromolecules (dairy and cereal proteins, lipids and polysaccharides); emulsion interfacial colloid and surface chemistry and colloidal stability; molecular basis of ingredient functionality, effects of processing on the rheological and chemical properties of food materials; and food structures to control digestion and nutrient transport.
Working with Agri-food industry to bridge the gap between fundamental science discovery and commercial applications: linking on-farm dairy managment and animal nutrition with milk quality, off-farm processing effeciency and dairy product innovation; salt and sugar reduction in cereal based foods; plant cell wall particle size reduction to redcue waste and value adding to food products.
