Keynote Speaker II

Assoc. Prof. Gun-Hean Chong
Universiti Putra Malaysia,  Malaysia

Dr. Gun-Hean Chong is an Associate Professor at Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), and the Head of Department of Food Technology, Faculty of Food Science and Technology, UPM. At the Faculty, he teaches fundamental food engineering, food units operation and physical properties of food. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Process and Food Engineering, Master’s degree in Agricultural Engineering, and PhD in Chemical Engineering. His primary research interests are supercritical carbon dioxide and food engineering processes. In the past, he has been a visiting researcher at Delft University, Netherlands, and Tohoku University, Japan. Dr. Chong has been working on solubility of compounds in supercritical carbon dioxide and extraction of bioactive compounds from bio-matrices with supercritical carbon dioxide. Currently, he is working on hybrid extraction technique, such as ultrasonic and dense carbon dioxide for the separation of phyto-nutrients from industrial by-products, namely the palm oil industry. He is also working on tailored-made smart powder with supercritical carbon dioxide to produce “the delicious medicine”. During his many years as a food engineer, Dr. Chong has been granted several research funding from industrial partners as well as the Malaysia’s Government to tackle issues and problems related to food processing. He has supervised five PhD students and ten Master students. He has published 33 scientific papers, two books and two book chapters, and currently serves as one of the Associate Editors for the JCR-indexed International Food Research Journal.
