Safaa Abdelaleem Mohammad El-Aidie | Food Science | Women Researcher Award

Assoc Prof Dr. Safaa Abdelaleem Mohammad El-Aidie | Food Science | Women Researcher Award

👨‍🏫Profile Summary

Right after graduating, I launched my research career in the field of food science. In the year 2000, I secured a full-time position as a Research Assistant at the Animal Production Research Institute. This marked the initiation of my journey in scientific research. My path in academia continued as I pursued an experimental approach to attain my Master’s degree. My MSc thesis focused on “Improving the Quality and Microstructure of Low Fat Edam Cheese Made from Buffaloes Milk”. Subsequently, in 2014, I embarked on a Ph.D. journey within the Department of Natural Resources, specifically within Animal Resources, at Faculty of African Postgraduate Studies Cairo University, Egypt. My doctoral research was centered around “Studies on Use of Some Fermented Milk to Produce Nutraceutical Dairy Foods in Egypt and Some East African Countries”. In 2015, I received the appointment as an Assistant Professor, further solidifying my commitment to academia and research. I have made significant contributions to the Animal Production Research Institute by actively engaging in teaching and training activities across all academic levels. These efforts have encompassed undergraduate education and have been particularly focused on the manufacturing processes of various dairy products. Furthermore, I have been dedicated to sharing my knowledge and expertise with my colleagues. In 2016, I received a prestigious post-doctoral offer from Lincoln University College, Malaysia, marking a pivotal point in my career. During August of the same year, I established a highly productive collaboration with the Faculty of Applied Sciences at UITM, Malaysia. Together, we conducted research projects closely aligned with the field of food science. Simultaneously, I held a position as an Assistant Professor on a part-time basis at both Lincoln University College and City University, Malaysia, up until May 2018. In July 2018, I assumed a full-time role as an Assistant Professor within the Faculty of Science at Lincoln University College, Malaysia, demonstrating my continued commitment to the pursuit of knowledge and research excellence. This position was held until June 2020. Following this, I resumed my work in the Animal Production Research Institute in Egypt, focusing on food science research. In February 2022, I earned a well-deserved promotion to the rank of Associate Professor.

Objective

My objective is to apply my academic proficiency in food science and technology towards making a significant contribution to the advancement of our educational institution. I am dedicated to imparting my expertise to graduates, equipping them to become a generation that is well-informed about the principles of food science and proficient in food handling. Furthermore, I am committed to sharing both foundational and practical research findings pertaining to food processing and preservation. This knowledge dissemination will serve to benefit the research, commercial, and industrial sectors, fostering growth and innovation within these communities.
