Professor Rosana G. Moreira


I hope you will enjoy and learn something when surfing on my site. I am a professor who teaches and investigates in the area of food engineering at the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering at Texas A&M University.

My research topics include engineering aspects of foods and food processes; fundamental modeling: dehydration, frying, extrusion, food irradiation; process control techniques as applied to food processing systems: food extrusion processes, continuous fryers, and continuous flow grains dyers; deep-fat frying: modeling, oil absorption mechanisms, vacuum frying, acrylamide; impingement drying; food safety: food irradiation and biosensor technology.

I teach courses in (1) Unit Operations of Food Processing; (2) Advances in Food Engineering (Food Irradiation); and (3) Heat and Mass Transfer in Biological Systems

Take a minute to learn more about the classes I teach and the researches I am involved with.

Welcome to my site

I am interested in the use of ionizing radiation to kill pathogens in fresh produces and in vacuum frying of fruits and vegetables - top image (E.coli in the stomate of a lettuce leaf); bottom image (vacuum fried sweet potato chips)
