overview

My research topics include engineering aspects of foods and food processes; fundamental modeling: dehydration, frying, extrusion, food irradiation; process control techniques as applied to food processing systems: food extrusion processes, continuous fryers, and continuous flow grains dyers; deep-fat frying: modeling, oil absorption mechanisms, vacuum frying, acrylamide; impingement drying; food safety: food irradiation and biosensor technology.
