Cristina Ratti, Université Laval, Canada

Cristina RattiCristina Ratti, graduated as a chemical engineer from Universidad Nacional del Sur (Bahia Blanca, Argentina) did her graduate studies in food engineering at the same institution. She obtained a PhD in chemical engineering in 1991 with her thesis on the “Design of batch air dryers for fruit and vegetable products”. She did several postdoctoral internships in Canada and Argentina from 1991 to 1996. In 1996, she joined the Soils and Agri-Food Engineering Department of Université Laval (Québec, Canada) as a professor of food engineering. She is presently a full professor of this Canadian Institution and a member of the Institute of Nutrition and Functional Foods. Her research interests have always been related to food dehydration (air drying, freeze-drying, osmotic dehydration) and physicochemical and quality properties of foodstuffs related to drying. More lately, she works in extraction of bioactive compounds by means of novel green technologies. She has published numerous scientific manuscripts including peer-reviewed articles, books, and book chapters, and contributed to the training of many graduate and undergraduate students in food engineering.
