Biography

Dr Rosalie Durham is the Academic Course Advisor to the Nutrition and Food Science program, with a strong background in food science and a passion for cooking and teaching. Rosalie completed an undergraduate degree with Honours in Food Technology from UNSW and worked in industry including Arnott’s and Syrinx Research Institute. She then completed an MSc Hons, before joining the University of Western Sydney in 1994 to work in collaboration with CSIRO to research whey process technologies with the support from Dairy Australia. This work led to the development and commercialization of a patented process for the purification of lactose from whey. Rosalie completed her PhD in 2000 and has won a number of awards, including AIFST Jack Kefford Award, Environmental Science Technology Award for Excellence at Knowledge Commercialisation Australasia and the 2005 DIAA Australian Dairy Innovation Award. She continues to research and teach in the areas of food processing particularly dairy and cereals, quality assurance and food safety, sustainable manufacturing and by-product utilisation.
