Markus Walkling-Ribeiro

Research Scientist

Markus Walkling-Ribeiro completed his certified engineering degree (Dipl.-Ing./M.Eng.Sc.) in food technology at Technische Universitaet Berlin (Germany) in 2004. Thereafter, he was awarded a Ph.D. in food science from University College Dublin (Ireland) before he commenced his postdoctoral fellowship in the Canadian Research Institute for Food Safety at the University of Guelph (Canada) in 2009. Following offers for postdoctoral research associate positions in the Department of Food Science at Cornell University (USA) in 2013 and 2014 Dr. Walkling-Ribeiro joined two different research groups there to extend his food engineering expertise further. Subsequently, he returned to Canada as a visiting scientist before joining the Biotechnology and Food Engineering Program of GTIIT in 2018.

 

Utilizing his specialization in food process engineering Dr. Walkling-Ribeiro studies and optimizes the application of diverse emerging food and bioprocessing technologies (e.g. high voltage pulsed electric fields, high hydrostatic pressure, ultraviolet light, lytic bacteriophage) in combination for enhanced microbial decontamination, better retention of natural quality attributes, and improved system sustainability.
