Ali Ali Redha is a PhD student at the QUEX Institute (The University of Queensland and the University of Exeter) under the supervision of Dr Luciana Torquati (UoE), Prof Mike Gidley (UQ), Prof Geoff Nash (UoE), and Dr Daniel Cozzolino (UQ).
His PhD project focuses on improving the bioavailability of health-promoting bioactive compounds present in vegetables. It involves developing green analytical techniques for quick determination of bioactive compounds using infrared spectroscopy that could be used in the food industry to monitor and optimise different post-harvest treatments to ensure conserving the highest amount of bioactive compounds. The project also involves applying encapsulation methods to protect sensitive bioactive compounds to improve their bioaccessibility and bioavailability.
