Dr B K Tiwari is a senior research officer at TEAGASC and adjunct Senior Lecturer at Dublin Institute of Technology, obtained his Masters degree at the Central Food Technological Research Institute (India) in 2003, and his PhD at the University College of Dublin (Ireland) in 2009. Before starting his PhD, he was employed as a Research Scientist at the Indian Institute of Crop Processing Technology (IICPT, India). Subsequently during his PhD studies he secured a Lecturer position in University College Dublin and later moved to commence a fulltime faculty position in Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) in 2010; later in 2011 he was appointed as a Senior Lecturer in MMU. He leads a team of 6 postdoctoral researchers/Research officers and 10 PhDs in the area of novel food processing technologies. His research output includes over 110 peer-reviewed research publications and over 70 book chapters. He has also co-edited 9 books and is a book series editor for IFST Advances in Food Science book series.  He is currently the Editor-in-chief of the Journal of Food Processing and Preservation.


Dr Tiwari’s research interests relate to novel food processing, extraction and preservation technologies, with a strong focus on investigation of biochemical and microbial kinetics in food and food products. . The research has been funded through various competitively won sources including the EU Horizon 2020, Irish Research Council, Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine, Enterprise Ireland, Knowledge Exchange & Innovation Funds (KEIF, UK), Science Without Borders (Brazil) and industry
