Eung Joong Oh joins the Department of Food Science as a fermentation expert. He received his doctorate from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and recently completed post-doctoral research at the University of Colorado Boulder. While fermentation is an important process for many consumables, from beer to sauerkraut, it is also essential to disciplines outside food production, including pharmaceuticals and fuels. Oh’s experience in the biotechnical production of fuels and value-added chemicals expands the expertise of the department and enhances the scope of its fermentation sciences program.
