Dr. Goran Vladisavljevic: Chemical Engineering

Dr. Goran T. Vladisavljević was born in 1963 in Zadar (Croatia). He received a B.Sc. in food engineering (1987) and a M.Sc. in chemical engineering (1992) from the University of Belgrade (Serbia) in modeling of ultrafiltration of colloidal inorganic oxide dispersions. He obtained a Ph.D. in chemical engineering (1997) from the University of Belgrade in membrane-based gas absorption and striping using hollow fiber membrane contactors. From 1987-2006, he was a full-time research and teaching assistant, assistant professor, and associate professor in food and chemical engineering at the University of Belgrade. He was a honorary research associate in the Laboratory of radioisotopes at the Vinča Institute of Nuclear Sciences in Belgrade, where he worked on separation of radiopharmaceuticals using hollow fiber membrane extraction. Currently, he is a lecturer in chemical engineering at the Loughborough University (UK). His main research interests are controlled production of monodispersed emulsions using membrane and microchannel array devices, development of new fabrication routes for functional micro/nano-particles (polymeric microspheres, gel microbeads, solid lipid particles, etc), microencapsulation and controlled release, and membrane separation technology.


From 2000-2001, he was a research fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation at the Institute of Food Process Engineering at University of Karlsruhe (Germany) under the supervisor of Prof. Helmar Schubert working on cross-flow membrane emulsification. During 2002-2003, he was a postdoctoral fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) at Miyazaki Prefecture Industrial Technology Center in Sadowara (Japan) under the supervisor of Dr. Tadao Nakashima. His research was centered on the use of Shirasu Porous Glass (SPG) membrane for production of uniformly sized emulsion droplets and microparticles. In 2004, he was a Royal Society honorary researcher at the Industrial Centre of Particle Science & Engineering at University of Leeds (UK) under the supervisor of Prof. Richard Williams, where he worked on a novel rotating membrane emulsification system and on characterisation of SPG membranes using high resolution x-ray microtomography. In 2005, he was a Fulbright Visiting Scholar for half a year at the Department of Food Science, University of Massachusetts at Amherst (USA) under the supervisor of Professor Julian McClements. His work in Amherst was focused on the development of new encapsulation strategies for functional food products based on a layer-by-layer (LbL) electrostatic deposition technique. In 2006, he was a visiting researcher of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science in Microchannel Array Engineering Team at the National Food Research Institute (NFRI) in Tsukuba (Japan) invited by Prof. Mitsutoshi Nakajima, the director of Food Engineering Division.


Dr. Vladisavljević has published over 30 scientific articles as journal manuscripts, book chapters, and encyclopedia entries, which are cited 70 times (without self-citations) in ISI SCI journals. His review article in co-authorships with Prof. R.A. Williams was placed No. 1 on Science Direct TOP25 Hottest Articles list within the journal Advances in Colloid and Interface Science and was placed No. 10 within the subject area Physics and Astronomy (all journals). He was a lecturer/tutor at two short university courses (Manufacturing Emulsions and Particulates using Membranes 2004 held in Leeds, UK and Emulsification Technology 2004, held in Karlsruhe, Germany). He was invited to give 9 seminar lectures and special presentations at universities in the UK, US, Germany, and Japan.  


He received a B.Sc. in food engineering (1987) and a M.Sc. in chemical engineering (1992) from the University of Belgrade; Ph.D. in chemical engineering (1997) from the University of Belgrade
