Biography


Professor Baoru
Yang (Female) holds a PhD degree in Food Chemistry from the University of
Turku, Finland. Previous education includes BSc. and MSc. degrees in Agronomy
from Beijing Agricultural University, China (Nowadays, China Agricultural University)
as well as MSc. Degree in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at University of
Turku, Finland.

Professor
Baoru Yang is the Head of the Food Chemistry and Food Development Unit, leading
the research in Food Sciences and the two education programmes: Food Chemistry
(MSc., PhD) and Food Development (MSc.-Tech, DSc.-Tech). 

Professor
Baoru Yang acts as the Vice Dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering,
University of Turku, responsible for international cooperation, doctoral
education, and societal interactions. She is a member
of Steering Committee of Doctoral
Education at University of Turku.

Professor Yang has a strong network of international
cooperation with collaborators from different regions of the world. She is the Coordinator
of the Finnish-Chinese Network of Excellence in Food Quality and Safety and the
Director of the Finnish-Chinese Center for Berry Research.

Professor Yang worked over ten years as a
Research Director in food companies in Finland and China. She has extensive
experience in leading large international research projects and special expertise
in collaboration with industrial partners.






Research



Professor Yang has
worked for over 20 years in research on influence of northern environment on
composition, quality and health effects of food crops. She has strong expertise
in the chemistry and biochemistry of lipids, polyphenols as well as other
secondary metabolites contributing to sensory properties and health effects of
food. She adopts state-of-art targeted and non-targeted metabolomics approaches
in her research using the modern tools of chromatography, mass spectrometry,
and NMR spectroscopy. A special focus is on food development research based on sustainable
utilization of natural resources from the land, forest and the sea.
