Primary Food Innovation Center Area: Foods for Health
Areas of Expertise: functional foods, targeted delivery systems, physico-chemical properties of foods, food quality and stability, bioplastics for food packaging applications

My area of interest is the physico-chemical changes of functional foods during formulation, processing and storage as they impact the delivery of bioactives. We utilize molecular, structural and macroscopic analysis to fully characterize food material behavior and subsequently can modify these products to deliver bioactives to targeted organs. This new center will provide the platform to connect with faculty in varying fields so as to successfully compete for federal and industry funding and carry out ground-breaking research.
