PhD degree – Trial Lecture and Public Defence
Mehmet Baris Ates, Department of Mathematical Sciences and Technology, will defend his PhD thesis: Investigating the effects of novel heat and high pressure processing on Listeria and Bacillus inactivation in a model food, on 11 June 2015.
Norwegian title of thesis:
Inaktiveringsstudie av Listeria og Bacillus i et modellprodukt prosessert ved en ny varmebehandlingsmetode og høytrykk
Prescribed subject of the trial lecture:
Food waste, shelf-life labeling and food safety. Describe how research in microbiology and microbiological modelling can contribute to determination of shelf-life for food products and how this can contribute to reduced food waste while food safety is ensured.
