Dr. Sea Min joined Seoul Women’s University in March 1 st , 2009. He is also currently appointed as an Affiliate Professor from the Univ. of Idaho. Dr. Min was born and grew up in South Korea where he received his BS (1998) degree of Food Science and Technology. He got his MS (2000) and Ph.D. (2003) degrees from the department of Food Science and Technology at the Ohio State University (OSU). He had been trained as a nonthermal food processing engineer by his advisor, Dr. Howard Zhang. He successfully conducted world-first commercial-scale PEF processing research with his advisor and colleagues. Dr. Min received an Outstanding Graduate Student Teaching Award and two Outstanding Graduate Student Research Awards while working on his Ph.D. at OSU. After graduating from OSU, he was appointed as a post-doctorate researcher in the department of Food Science and Technology at University of California in Davis (UCD). His research on biopolymer edible films and coatings at UCD has made a large impact on the field of anti-microbial use for improving food safety. Supporting one of the main hypotheses of the research, Dr. Min determined that incorporating the antimicrobial compounds in biopolymer films and coatings on foods is more effective than direct application of these antimicrobials to the food surfaces. He received an Honorable Mention in a very competitive UCD campus-wide competition on postdoctoral research. He worked in the bi-state School of Food Science at University of Idaho as an assistant professor of Food Process Engineering and Packaging (2007-2008).
