- +44 (0)1509 222518
Goran Vladisavljevic received a BSc in Food Engineering (1987), an MSc in Chemical Engineering (1992), and a PhD in Chemical Engineering (1997) from University of Belgrade (Serbia). From 1987 to 2006, he was a Teaching Assistant, Assistant Professor, and Associate Professor in Food and Chemical Engineering at the University of Belgrade. In 2000/01 he worked as a Research Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation at the University of Karlsruhe.
In 2002 he moved to Japan to take up a JSPS post-doctoral research position at Miyazaki Prefecture Industrial Technology Center. In 2004 he was a Royal Society Visiting Researcher at the Industrial Centre of Particle Science and Engineering at the University of Leeds. In 2005, he joined the Department of Food Science, University of Massachusetts at Amherst (USA) as a Fulbright Visiting Scholar. In 2006, he was a JSPS Visiting Professor at the National Food Research Institute in Tsukuba (Japan) and later that year became a Lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering.
