School of Food Science
Welcome to my Academic Profile page. My name is Sirwan Ahmed Mam Rashid and I am a assistant lecturer holding (MSc) degree in the Food packaging, in the faculty of Agricultural science- Department of food Science-University of Sulaimani in Kurdistan Region, F.R. Iraq
Currently I am studying PhD in the school of food science and nutrition- University of Leeds-UK
I teach several topics at my faculty, i.e.
1. Food Packaging.
2. Food Quality control.
3. Food industry engineering.
My research interests focus on;
1. Food packaging and shelf life.
2. Food colloid: preparing emulsions using variety of natural and synthesized emulsifiers to bring both hydrophilic and hydrophobic compounds together which are immiscible by themselves,such as oil and water with droplet size ranging between nano and micro meters. Studying the mechanisms of destabilization such as creaming, coalescence, flocculation and Ostwald ripening in every system is crucial using different lab instruments.
3. Encapsulation, to protect the active compounds in food, pharmacy and cosmetics encapsulation is used widely all over the world. The capsules contains both internal (Core) and external (Shell) parts. The capsules able to extend the shelf life of the phytochemicals such as components; time and location using different triggers (pH, water, temperature, light...etc.) Which leads to the maximum usefulness of them.
