|Nanoparticles and Colloidal Systems|
|Nanoscale engineering: nanoencapsulation of bioactive components for controlled drug release and food applications. The design of nanoparticle/colloidal systems is one of the main research thrusts of the lab. We focus on targeted delivery of vitamins, antioxidants, colorants, and antifungals via colloidal and nanoparticle systems.|
|Microwave Extractions of Bioactive Components|
|Process development: microwave heating, supercritical fluid extraction of bioactive components from plants. The design of continuous-flow microwave systems for food and bioenergy processes is explored.|
|Numerical Methods of Multiphysics Phenomena|
|Mathematical modeling: numerical modeling of bioprocesses involving multiphysics phenomena. Continuous-flow focused microwave heating is analyzed using ANSYS Multiphysics.|
