Tuyen Truong is a lecturer in Food Technology. She is responsible for carrying out teaching activities and advance research activities within the Bioscience and Food Technology discipline.
Tuyen Truong joined the Bioscience and Food Technology discipline, School of Science in October 2018.
Tuyen's research cores are on food/dairy processing technologies, food materials science including food emulsion, food crystallisation/glass transition and food dehydration. Tuyen has developed carbon dioxide-enhanced crystallisation technique and dairy-based oleogels system, which can be used to improve functionality of butter, low fat spreads and whipped cream. She has engaged in investigation on functionality and stability of dairy products on a milk fat globule size basis. Tuyen's current research focuses on innovations for dairy products and processes. Her research interests also steer towards the big challenges of oil structuring for fat-reduced food products. She aims to develop innovative templates for gelling of oil (oleogelation) that are suitable for broad range of applications including food, pharmaceuticals and neutraceuticals.
Tuyen has been awarded MADP2017 Young Scientist Excellent Award to recognise her in the initial phase of her career for the potential to make outstanding scientific contributions to the field of dairy science & technology and the potential for future scientific leadership.
Tuyen has previous lecturing experience in the areas of Food Processing Technology, Food Materials Science at The University of Queensland and Sensory Evaluation of Food at Nong Lam University (Vietnam). She is the course coordinator of one undergraduate course offered to Bachelor of Applied Science (Nutrition and Food Technology) students at RMIT Melbourne.
