Odinei Hess Gonçalves graduated in Chemical Engineering (2000) and PhD in Materials Science and Engineering (2008) both at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (Brazil). He joined the Federal University of Technology – Paraná in 2008 where he is professor in the Post-Graduation Program of Food Technology (PPGTA). His main research interests are the production of encapsulated compounds like bioactives and oils and their application in foodstuff. He is a researcher with Productivity Grant in the Brazilian National Research Council (CNPq) and coordinates research projects funded by Brazilian agencies like CNPq and Fundação Araucária. Now he is in the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança (IPB) for his one-year post-doctoral research under the supervision of Professor Filomena Barreiro (Project 99999.000488/2016-00 - Programas Estratégicos - DRI - CAPES/Brazil).
