Ioanna Mantala
Associate Professor
Laboratory of Food Process Engineering

Assοciate Professor Ioanna Mandala is a staff member of Food Process Engineering Lab at the Department of Food Science & Human Nutrition of Agricultural University of Athens, Greece. She is a Chemical Engineer being graduated from National Technical University of Athens and she holds a Ph.D. performed in Food Engineering Lab at Agricultural University of Athens, focused on texture and microstructure of starch/hydrocolloids systems. During her studies she has collaborated with several research groups abroad, in Germany (Karlsruhe), France (ENSIA-Paris), and New Jersey, USA (Rutgers University). She has 69 publications in peer-reviewed journals, 80 presentations in international conferences and has written 11 chapters in books. All papers have achieved nearly 1700 citations (11/2020, and h-factor:26, according to Scopus search). She participated in 26 national or international research projects as member of the research team, scientific supervisor, or project coordinator, mainly focused on polysaccharides including starch in food, and emerging technologies applications, such as jet milling, ultrasonication or electrospinning in order that very fine structures are produced and investigated.
