Dr. Sungil (Sun) Ferreira is a postdoctoral associate at the University of Minnesota in the Plant Protein Innovation Center developing studies in protein extraction and characterization. He has a bachelor in Food Science, Technology and Engineering with a PhD in Food Science and Engineering, at the Sao Paulo State University (UNESP) in Brazil. Part of the bachelor was done in the University of British Columbia in Canada and part of the PhD was done at the University of Loughborough in the United Kingdom. Studied encapsulation using spray drying, complex coacervation, ionic gelation, emulsification, with a focus on influence of process parameters and polymer structure. In addition, Sungil has a strong background in physics and mathematical approaches.
