MSc. Orlando Daniel de la Rosa Flores.
Orlando is a Ph.D. student of Food Science and Technology at School of Chemistry at Autonomous University of Coahuila. Graduated as chemical pharmaceutical biologist with specialization in food science from the School of Chemistry in the Autonomous University of Coahuila (2015) and a Master´s degree on Food Science and Technology at School of Chemistry at Autonomous University of Coahuila (2019). In the industrial sector Orlando worked with Diken International developing a project of evaluation of organic sanitizers against Alicyclobacillus in the juice industry. Orlando also worked in Green Corp in the Applied Microbiological Center at the Research and Development Department, focused in Solid state fermentation (SSF) processes of fungi used in biocontrol. Orlando performed a bachelor thesis focused on the development of bioprocess for Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) production via SSF using Aguamiel and agro-industrial residues. On Master’s degree Orlando focused on the improvement of the FOS yield, reduction of production costs evaluating alternative sucrose sources and final product downstream evaluation to obtain high purity FOS. Orlando is currently working on the development of a bioprocess for the generation of FOS and carotenoids in a fermentation system. Member of the Mexican Association of Food Science (AMECA). Orlando has published 1 Article and 1 book chapter as main author and has collaborated in 1 article other 3 book chapters and has participated in 2 international and 1 national congresses. Orlando´s expertise areas are microbiology focused on Submerged Fermentation and Solid State fermentation, having worked with nearly 20 strains used in biocontrol, FOS production, carotenoid production and Food spoilage bacteria.
