About Brijesh Tiwari
Dr B K Tiwari is a Senior Research Officer at TEAGASC – The Irish Food and Agriculture Development Authority and also an Adjunct Senior Lecturer at Dublin Institute of Technology. He obtained his Masters degree from the Central Food Technological Research Institute (India) in 2003, and his PhD degree from University College of Dublin (Ireland) in 2009. Previously he was a Research Scientist at the Indian Institute of Crop Processing Technology (IICPT, India). During his PhD studies he secured a Lecturer position in University College Dublin and later moved to commence a fulltime faculty position in Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) in 2010. In 2011 he was appointed as a Senior Lecturer in MMU.
Currently he leads a team of 3 Postdoctoral Researchers, 2 Research Officers and 12 PhD students in the area of novel food processing technologies. His primary research interests relate to novel food processing, extraction and preservation technologies, with a strong focus on the investigation of biochemical and microbial kinetics in food and food products. He is particularly interested in the investigation of technological aspects (nutritional, microbial, enzymatic and chemical inactivation phenomena) in thermal and non-thermal processing studies. A particular focus of Dr Tiwari’s current research relates to the investigation of green and sustainable technological solutions for food industry extraction and preservationapplications.
His publication track record includes 110 peer reviewed journal papers (h index 33 - Web of Science), 88 international conference papers, 76 book chapters, 1 patent, 9 edited/authored books and 1 book series (IFST Advances in Food Science Series). He is also an elected member of the Food Engineering group of Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and Fellow of Institute of Food Science and Technology (UK). He was appointed Editor – in – chief of Journal of Food Processing and Preservation, Guest Managing Editor (Food Research International; Innovative Food Science and Emerging Technologies). He is also a member of the Editorial Board of Food Engineering Reviews (Springer).
