Academic Career and Research Areas

Prof. Kulozik (b. 1955) conducts research into food process engineering, in particular structure formation with biopolymers, membrane separation technology, protein technology and bioprocess engineering. He aims to explain the complex interactions between food components and process engineering operations and apply his findings to real processes to predict behavior.

After studying food technology at TUM, Prof. Kulozik obtained his doctorate in 1986 and his lecturer qualification in 1991. From 1984 to 1999, he worked as department manager for process & product development and in strategic technology research at Kraft Foods (R&D) in Munich. During that time, he also lectured in biotechnology at TUM. In 2000, he was appointed to the Chair of Food Process Engineering and Dairy Science, succeeding Prof. Heinz-Gerhard Kessler. He had turned down a Chair at the University of Stuttgart-Hohenheim in 1998 in favor of TUM. He has published approximately 160 scientific papers and book contributions.
