About V.M. Balasubramaniam
Our current research focus is on high-pressure pasteurization and sterilization of foods.
Our team investigate combined pressure-thermal resistance of surrogate organisms for process validation.
We evaluate combined pressure-thermal effects on various food products and evaluate product quality. We develop kinetic models for bacterial inactivation and estimate thermo physical properties of foods under pressure.
