Dr. Ubeyitogullari’s research interests revolve primarily around food engineering and novel food processing technologies with a specific focus on enhancing health benefits and quality of foods. The overarching goal of his research program is to improve human health and wellness through food by employing innovative technologies. Specifically, the Ubeyitogullari Lab is interested in enhancing bioavailability of micronutrients using nanoscale science and engineering based on supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO2) technology.

Research Goals:

  1. Develop new technologies to improve bioavailability of bioactive compounds and protect them during storage.
  2. Fabricate nanoscale food-grade materials for the delivery of bioactive compounds.
  3. Create functional foods by using additive manufacturing.
