       RESEARCH CAREER SUMMARY

       Professor Harjinder Singh gained his Ph.D. in Food Science and Technology at University College Cork, Ireland. His early research focussed on understanding the chemical and physical changes in the structures of milk proteins, in particular casein micelles and whey proteins, during heat processing. This work provided in-depth knowledge on protein modifications during heat processing and new mechanisms of heat-induced coagulation of milk. These highly original ideas and findings were published in high impact international dairy journals and were also the subject of many of his invited book chapters, reviews and conference presentations. In addition the information generated has been used in solving industrial problems worldwide, relating to heat stability of evaporated milks, properties of milk concentrates and milk powders.

       After moving to Massey University, his research interest broadened to investigate structure- function relationships of milk proteins in food colloids. This work provided new insights into the molecular interactions of proteins at oil-water interfaces in emulsions, aggregation and gelation of proteins under different processing environments, protein-polysaccharide interactions in food systems. Many new measurement techniques, dealing with complex concentrated systems, were also developed.  This work has had a major international impact and has also allowed the NZ dairy industry to develop new protein products with highly enhanced functionality. Professor is regarded as world authority on the subject of colloidal stability of milk and milk products and functional properties of milk protein products.

       Professor Singh’s papers have been published in excellent, high ranking food and dairy journals as well as fundamental physical sciences journals, and a large number of papers have attracted high citation ratings. His current H-index is 47 with total citations of over 6800.
