题目：Research trends in drying/dehydration processes of food products
主讲人：Dr. Magdalena Zielinska，University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, Poland
Dr. Magdalena Zielinska is an Associate Professor at the Department of Systems Engineering at the University of Warmia and Mazury, Poland. After getting her PhD degree from the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, she performed a two-year postdoctoral research at the Department of Biosystems Engineering, in University of Manitoba, Canada.
Her research areas include innovative food drying science and technologies (e.g., superheated steam drying, microwave-vacuum drying, heat pump assisted drying), heat and mass transport phenomena, physical and thermo-diffusive properties of foods and food quality assessment as well as mathematical modelling and optimization of unit operations for various industrial configurations. Dr. Zielinska has published more than 70 articles in prestigious journals such as Drying Technology, Food Chemistry, Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition, Journal of Food Engineering as well as international conferences.
Dr. Zielinska has rich international collaborative research experience and has established extensive international cooperation with scholars from China, Canada, Russia, Norway, Thailand, Malaysia, Oman. She is one of the Editorial board members of the Journal Technical Sciences. Currently, Dr. Zielinska is a visiting scholar of China Agricultural University, and will stay at College of Engineering for 3 months to conduct a cooperative research with Dr. Hong-Wei Xiao about innovative pretreatment and drying technologies for agricultural products and herbs.
Dr. Zielinska’s presentation about the research trends in drying/dehydration processes of food products will cover: drying research status in Europe, particular in Poland; advantages, limitations and critical parameters of conventional drying; motivations to seek new drying technologies; trends and applications of innovative drying technologies; her research interest and experience sharing.
