Dr. Jiménez-Flores conducts scientific research in the area of Dairy Science
applied to foods. His focus is on milk proteins, interactions of milk proteins with other
components during processing, biotechnology, and dairy microbiology as it applies to
dairy foods. Dr. Jiménez-Flores teaches Bioseparation Process in Dairy Products
Technology, and Dairy Microbiology. He also teaches several short courses for the dairy
industry. He has a great interest in advising and providing many opportunities for senior
projects for students interested in the area of food and dairy food processing, food
chemistry, food and dairy microbiology and with programs for graduate students pursuing
their Masters degree at the Dairy Products Technology Center.
