Mario M. Martinez started his independent research career as Tenure-Track Assistant Professor at the University of Guelph (ON, Canada) in August 2017 prior to joining Aarhus University in April 2020.

Dr. Martinez' research has focused on understanding the structure and performance of edible plant tissues and food biopolymers. His multidisciplinary background brings together analytical methods in the fields of glycomics and biophysics, in order to understand how nanostructures and their assemblage can affect the performance of foods as nutrients and bio-based-biodegradable materials as plastics. He investigates structure-texture-digestion relationships, phenolic-carbohydrate interactions, shear-scission of biopolymers, shear banding of proteins, and the valorization of food and agricultural waste through thermomechanical processing, such as high shear screw extrusion. This cross-disciplinary perspective will bring a new understanding to the areas of food and packaging potentially making a major contribution to the global health crisis related to dietary non-communicable diseases and the elimination of fossil-fuel derived plastics.

The list of publications from Dr. Martinez until 2019 can be found in the following link. His publications from 2020 are listed in Research Outputs Section. 

Dr. Martinez is also adjunct Assistant Professor at the Whistler Center for Carbohydrate Research (Purdue University, IN, USA) and at the Department of Physics of the University of Guelph (ON, Canada).
