Javier Raso received his PhD in 1995 at the University of Zaragoza (Spain) where he is currently professor of Food Technology and former Director of the Pilot Plant of Food Science and Technology. He has been visiting researcher of the Microbiology Department at Unilever Research in Bedford (UK), of the Department of Food Biotechnology and Food Process Engineering at Technical University of Berlin (Germany) and of the Biological Systems Engineering Department at Washington State University (USA). His areas of research are in the field of food preservation and processing by thermal and non-thermal technologies such as ultrasound, high hydrostatic pressure, pulsed electric fields and combined processing. Research interest is focused in critical factors affecting efficacy of technologies, kinetics and mathematical modeling, process optimization and mechanisms of action. He has been involved in a number of EU and national funded projects in these topics and he is the author of more than 80 peer-review papers. He is co-author of the book “Pulsed Electric Fields Technology for the Food Industry” and he is serving in the editorial board of the “Innovative Food Science and Emerging Technologies” journal. He is currently Vice-chair of the COST Action TD1104 “European network for development of electroporation-based technologies and treatments (EP4Bio2Med)”.
