Dr. Woojeong Kim is a Research Associate in the School of Chemical Engineering, UNSW Sydney. She received her PhD in Food Science and Technology from UNSW Sydney in 2023. Her research focuses on food processing technologies, food engineering, and protein structure and functionality. In particular, she attempts to enhance the functionality of plant proteins by interacting with other compounds (polysaccharide, dairy proteins, polyphenols) for emulsion stabilisation and microencapsulation.
