Researcher biography

Oladipupo Q. Adiamo is a PhD student at the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI), The University of Queensland. He completed his BSc and MSc degrees (Food Science and Technology) from Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria in 2010 and 2014, respectively. Thereafter, he proceeded to King Saud University, Saudi Arabia where he bagged another MSc in Food Science (with a specialization on Functional Foods and Food Safety). His previous research works were focused on sustainable agriculture by the development of new food products using health beneficial properties from agricultural by-products and application of innovative non-thermal treatments to improve food safety. During his overseas master’s program, he also worked as a research assistant and has published several articles in international peer-reviewed journals. His present PhD study is focused on increasing the potential use of underutilized Australian indigenous wattle seeds. This will be achieved by applying innovative non-thermal processing methods to improve the safety of the seeds for human consumption and producing value-added protein products from the seeds.

Oladipupo’s principal advisor is Associate Professor Yasmina Sultanbawa
