Costas G. Biliaderis is a Professor in the Department of Food Science and Technology, Faculty of Agriculture, Aristotle University, Thessaloniki, Greece. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Aristotle University (1975), his M.Sc. (1978) and Ph.D. (1980) degrees from University of Saskatchewan, Canada, and he has held appointments as a research associate with the National Research Council of Canada (1980-81), a project chemist with Kraft-General Foods, Inc. (1984-85), an Associate Professor with the University of Manitoba, Canada (1985-1993) and a visiting Professor with the Cyprus University of Technology (2010). He has been also an Adjunct Professor with the University of Guelph, Canada (1985-87), as well as an invited Professor in the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania - CIHEAM (Chania, Crete, Greece, 1994-2016) and the Dept. of Nutrition and Dietetics, Harokopio University of Athens (2007-16), giving lectures in the graduate programs of these Institutions. He served as Chairman of the Dept. of Food Science, Faculty of Agriculture, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2002-06 & 2014-18). He was an Associate Editor of the Journal ‘Bioactive Carbohydrates and Dietary Fiber’ and a current or former member of the editorial board of three scientific journals (Carbohydrate Polymers, Journal of Food Protection, International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition). He is the author and co-author of more than 190 research journal articles (Web of Science) and 17 book chapters in the broad area of food chemistry and physical chemistry of food systems, with a focus on ‘structure-function relationships of food constituents’ in model systems or real food products, as well as the co-editor of a book entitled “Functional Food Carbohydrates” published by CRC Press (2007). Throughout his academic career, he has supervised eight doctoral, 30 M.Sc. theses (all research type) and eight post-doctoral fellows, and served as an invited external examiner of nineteen doctoral theses in several European and Canadian Universities. Dr. Biliaderis has more than 240 presentations in International Conferences and Workshops, including 47 invited talks-lectures, and participated as faculty in many short courses organized internationally. His current research interests include the chemistry and physical chemistry of polymeric food carbohydrates (plant and microbial origin), thermal analysis of food constituents and thermophysical properties of polysaccharide blends, the processing and storage effects on texture and stability of food products and their constituents, the physical chemistry and properties of food dispersions (o/w) with engineered interfaces, structured delivery systems as well as functional foods and nutraceuticals. He has directed more than thirty research projects funded by National and International institutions as well as various food industries, and served as a member of the Functional Food and Nutraceutical Advisory Board, Forbes Medi-Tech. Inc., Vancouver, BC, Canada (1998-2006). Dr. Biliaderis was named as ‘highly cited researcher’ by ISI-Thomson Scientific (since 2003), with more than 10000 citations (Web of Science) for his published research articles (h-index 63, Web of Science), and received several awards for his achievements in research, teaching, and scholarly works (Univ. of Manitoba, Aristotle University, Purdue University, etc.).
