Dr.-Ing. Azad Emin

Research Group Leader
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

Dr.-Ing. M. Azad Emin received his PhD degree in Process Engineering from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany. Subsequently, in 2013, he has started to work as a senior research scientist and established the extrusion research group in the Institute of Process Engineering in Life Sciences at KIT. He is currently leading a research group of 6 PhD students focusing mainly on the analysis of extrusion processing at mechanistic level to design sustainable and functional food systems. Product design, rheology, process instrumentation, and modeling are, therefore, some of the scientific fields, he has been working on. His research has been acknowledged by several awards including EFCE Food Engineering Award (2013), BBGG - Bernhard van Lengerich Award (2015), IUFoST Young Scientist Award (2016) and ProcessNet-Food Process Engineering Award (2016).
