He has been a visiting Professor in the Dept. of Food Engineering, Univ. of Massachusetts (1986, 1987); in the Dept. of Food Science and Nutrition, University of Minnesota (1991); in the Dept. of Food Engineering, Univ. of Sao Paulo, Brazil (2011). His research interests include the development of minimal processing schemes, osmotic pre-concentration and formulation of food, low pressure membrane processing (direct osmosis, ultrafiltration), the development of environmentally viable water and waste management schemes. He has been strongly interested in sustainability along the food supply chains and how it can serve quality differentiation leading to product de-commoditization and protection of small farmer interests. He has participated in many scientific conferences, often as an invited or keynote speaker. He also had an active participation in European Thematic Networks (FOOD Net, ISEKI). Parallel to his academic duties, he has been offering scientific support to National and European consumer movement. He has contributed to consumer education on food issues via numerous publications and presentations in Schools and mass media.-
