Chyngyz Erkinbaev is an Assistant Professor in Smart Technologies in Food Process Engineering. He received a Ph.D. degree from the Mechatronics, Biostatistics and Sensors Division of the Biosystems Department, University of Leuven (KU Leuven), Belgium. He has extensive international research and teaching experience in several countries (i.e. Kyrgyzstan, Thailand, Switzerland, Israel, Japan, Belgium, and Canada).
Currently, one Ph.D. position available for a student with a background in Biosystems/Food Engineering to pursue research on multispectral sensing for chemical and structural mapping of food matrices, real-time smart sensor design, and multivariate analytics.
We live in the age of digital and advanced technology that has been rapidly integrating into agriculture and food systems. Smart sensing technologies are aiming to improve the efficiency of the entire food cycle, including farming, storage, processing, and retail. The goal of my research program is to develop and apply smart sensing techniques and associated computational tools for the extraction of useful information from large datasets to make agri-food systems more productive, efficient, and sustainable.
