Ambassadors' Reports

Prof. Arisseto:
I have been a member of GHI since 2016 and my goals as an Ambassador for Brazil include making GHI known in Brazil through presentations at scientific events related to food safety and through publications and translation of GHI documents to Portuguese. I will also raise GHI’s profile at the Brazilian Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) with which I plan to share the association’s messages and related documents. I look forward to contributing information regarding food safety issues in Brazil.

Dr. Rosenthal:
As a GHI Ambassador to Brazil, I plan to help support GHI messages and communications with other institutional bodies and initiatives with which I am involved, including the Technical Committee of Embrapa Food Safety Portfolio, the Brazilian Society of Food Science and Technology, the Food Safety Working Group, the Section VI Technical Board of the International Commission of Agricultural Engineering (CIGR), and ISEKI.

Prior to joining GHI in 2016, I coordinated the organization of the Brazilian Congress of Food Science and Technology together with the CIGR Section VI International Symposium. In addition, I also coordinated a food safety workshop as a follow-on to the congress, “Food Safety: Scenarios and Demands,” which was a joint initiative of the CIGR Food Safety Working Group together with the Embrapa Food Safety Portfolio. As an outcome of that event, we have decided to organize another broader event for which other institutions will be invited. I hope to propose the participation of GHI as co-organizer and speaker of the new event. At the same time, I will search for similar opportunities with other scientific organizations where I can promote GHI messages and publications.

Dr. Amin Mousavi Khaneghah:
As an ambassador of GHI, it is my honor to represent GHI in various scientific societies as well as publish articles and chapters for books. In this context, only over the last four years, I authored or co-authored more than 120 papers, published in international peer-reviewed journals in addition to one book and five chapters in the field of food contaminants such as heavy metals, pesticides, mycotoxins, active packaging and Essential oils. As a reviewer for more than 44 ISI indexed journals; I honored as one of the top 1 percent of peer reviewers in Agriculture and Biological Science base on Publons report 2017.

I am a member of an active research team that is going to try new technologies to remove contaminants such as mycotoxins and pesticides from food products, especially cereal-based products.
