Vassilia J. Sinanoglou is a PhD Chemist from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and her present position is a Professor in Instrumental Food Analysis, Laboratory of Chemistry, Analysis & Design of Food Processes, Department of Food Science and Technology, University of West Attica. She is the head of the department since 2016. She has over 25 years undergraduate and postgraduate teaching experience related to Instrumental Food Analysis, Food Analysis, Food Chemistry and General Chemistry. She has over thirty years research experience in (1) instrumental food analysis (chromatography, mass spectrometry, spectroscopy) and development of analytical methods, (2) natural antioxidants extraction from agricultural and industrial residues, (3) analysis of natural products (lipids, antioxidants, vitamins, phenolics, minerals), (4) biomolecular structure identification (phospholipids, triglycerides, phenolics, dipeptides etc.), (5) application of methods for measuring the antioxidant and anti-root activity of natural antioxidants and lipid extracts; (6) study of food irradiation and its effects on food functional components and food quality, (7) organoleptic properties (colour and texture) measurement and (8) the application of statistical analysis to develop models for the classification and monitoring of the nutritional value of food products. She has published more than 67 research articles in international scientific journals and book chapters and more than 130 research articles in international and Hellenic scientific conferences. She is a Referee at forty scientific journals. She was coordinated and participated in 7 research projects.
