I am currently an assistant professor in food technology with strong background in the chemical engineering, while simultaneously serving as a deputy head of department to ensure both academic and administrative operations are running well. At the moment I am developing membrane technology for food applications, and also purification of organic solvents/biofuels (e.g. ethanol), water treatment. I am confident in solving multi-variant problems related to bio/chemical/food processes owing to my 3 years experiences on postdoctoral research in integrated research areas (membrane technology, plasma science, biomedical, biomaterials, drug delivery/pharmaceutical engineering, mathematical modeling and statistics) and close to 4 years on teaching & education.
