Dr. Andre Beerlink
Advances In X-ray Computed Tomography Technology And Their Applications In Life Sciences
Since the start of his scientific career as an X-ray physicist at the Institute for X-Ray Physics of the University of Göttingen, Germany, Dr. Beerlink has always been involved in collaborations with scientists and researchers around the globe to explore their specimens, animals, fossils, materials, statues, molecules, biomaterial structures, and many more. His main focus in these projects has been the development and improvement of the biophysical analytical methods mostly based on X-rays to expand the limits of the commonly available analytical technologies.
Dr. Beerlink defended his doctoral thesis at the Institute for X-ray Physics, University of Göttingen on Black lipid membranes studied by x-ray phase contrast imaging. His postdoctoral fellowship he spent at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY (Hamburg, Germany) working on Soft matter synchrotron research. At the moment he works at YXLON International GmbH, Hamburg, Germany as a international sales manager, specializing on X-ray inspection and computed tomography products in universities, research institutes and museums.
Professor Seid Mahdi Jafari
Cutting-edge nanoencapsulation technologies for food experts
Prof. Seid Mahdi Jafari received his PhD degree in Food Process Engineering from the University of Queensland (Australia), in 2006. He has been working on the nanoemulsification and nanoencapsulation of food bioactive ingredients for the past 15 years. Now, as a full Professor, he is an academic member of GUASNR (Iran). He has published more than 115 papers in top-ranked International Food Science journals (h-index=29 in Scopus) and 25 book chapters along with editing 11 books with Elsevier. In November 2015, he was awarded as one of the top 1% scientists of the world with the highest citations by Thomson Reuters (Essential Scientific Indicators) in the field of Biological Sciences. Also in December 2017, he was selected as one of the top national researchers of IRAN by the Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology.
