Dr.-Ing. M. Azad Emin received his PhD degree in Process Engineering from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany. Subsequently, in 2013, he has established the extrusion research group in the Institute of Process Engineering in Life Sciences at KIT. He is currently leading a research group of 6 PhD students focusing mainly on the analysis of extrusion processing at mechanistic level to design sustainable and functional food systems. Meat alternatives is, therefore, one of the main topics (with the total project budget of 2M€), he has been working on. His research has been acknowledged by several awards including EFCE Food Engineering Award (2013), BBGG -Award (2015), IUFoST Young Scientist Award (2016), and ProcessNet-Food Process Engineering Award (2016).
