Dr. Ali Demirci

Dr. Demirci's areas of interest include:

  • Food Safety Engineering: inactivation of pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms by using novel non-thermal processing technologies such as electrolyzed oxidizing (EO) water, pulsed UV-light, ozone, irradiation, high hydrostatic pressure, and super critical carbon dioxide.
  • Fermentation/Bioprocessing: bioconversion of agricultural raw and waste commodities into value added products; bioenergy/biofuels; strain development; novel bioreactors; downstream processing.
