Jordi Saldo is licentiate in Biology (UB) and in Food Science and Technology (UAB) and holds a PhD in Food Science (UAB). Before starting his postgraduate education, he worked for 8 years in fats and oils companies (Henkel Ibérica and Vandemoortele), where he gathered a good foundation on food processing at an industrial level. Jordi Saldo is Associate Professor at UAB since 2011, after completing a tenure. He was previously Associate Professor at UPC (2003-2006), teaching Unit Operations, Food Processing Methods and other subjects the like. He is Visiting Professor at Centro de Productos Bióticos (CEPROBI), part of Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN) in México since 2016, and he collaborates regularly with Universidad Politécnica Equinoccial (Quito, Ecuador) since 2015.
The researcher has 3 research tracks evaluated positively (the last one in 2016). He has been published 40 journal papers indexed in Web of Science (20 on 1st quartile), with an h-index of 16. These papers have received a thousand citations, 63.8 citations/year in the last 5 years (2014-19). He is member of the editorial board of Journal of Dairy Research, and has been reviewing for up to 20 different journals. Dr. Saldo has supervised 7 PhD thesis (and 5 more still in progress) and 11 MSc thesis and participated in 2 international projects devoted to University education, the 159444-1-2009-1-DK-EMMC; Erasmus Mundus Master Food of Life (EMFoL), funded by Education Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), where Dr. Saldo was PI for the UAB participation. The second project has been the Latin American University, at the heart of the challenges of sustainable technical and social innovations in the territorial agro-food systems (INOVIA), funded also by Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (Brussels) for the period 2016-19. Dr. Saldo Has been IP of different projects devoted to technology transfer, such as contracts with Arrossaires del Delta de l’Ebre (2016-2020), with Associació Catalana d'Escorxadors i Sales de Desfer (2013) or though competitive programs as RTC-2014-3157-2 Desarrollo de una nueva generación de equipos UHPH para el esterilizado de alimentos líquidos (UHPH4FOOD), with INSTALACIONES YPSICON SL. He has attracted effectively talent with the TECNIOSpring program (funded under Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions) to hire high skilled postdocs (TECSPR19-1-0082).
Dr. Saldo started to work with multivariate data processing in 1999, introduced to this topic during his pre-doctoral stay at UCC (Ireland). He has applied these skills to several research projects, with an output reflected into journal papers, and teaching short courses at Universidad Politécnica Equinoccial, and its application to solve some of the problems presented by contracts with companies.
The researcher has participated in different kinds of projects, funded from the European level to direct contracts with companies. He has been working with the core of this fluorescence research team in the projects AGL2012-33957 and COMRDI15-1-0027, applying optical methods based on fluorescence measurements and spectral multivariate data treatment to produce prediction models applied to dairy and meat processing.
