Dr. Daryl Lund, emeritus professor of food engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, earned a B.S. degree in mathematics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a Ph.D in food science with a minor in chemical engineering also from the University of Wisconsin. His research included fouling in heat exchangers during processing, microwave-processing of foods, and food quality kinetics. During his career, Dr. Lund has written over 200 publications in scientific journals, 25 book chapters, co-authored a major textbook in the area of simultaneous heat and mass transfer in foods, kinetics of reactions in foods, and food processing, edited 5 books, and presented over 200 presentations. He has served as a member of several Editorial and Advisory Boards. In September 2003, Dr. Lund was named one of 26 innovators in Food Engineering magazine's 75th anniversary edition.
Dr. Lund has demonstrated stellar leadership in a variety of roles, serving as Department Chair for the Departments of Food Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (1984-87) and Rutgers University (1988-89); Dean of the Colleges of Agriculture and Natural Resources at Rutgers University (1989-95), and Agricultural and Life Sciences at Cornell University (1995-2000). While serving as Dean at Rutgers, Dr. Lund streamlined administrative services, initiated a review of the undergraduate curriculum, and initiated long-range planning for the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station. While at Cornell, he initiated long-range planning that helped the college survive a 20% reduction in staffing, increased state support of the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, initiated a review of undergraduate curriculum that led to major changes within the organization, initiated support of distance learning, and initiated significant investment in genomics. In 2001, Dr. Lund was named Executive Director of the North Central Regional Association of State Agriculture Experiment Stations Directors acting as a facilitator of interstate collaborations in research and greater integration between research and extension in a twelve state area.
Dr. Lund held various leadership positions within the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), including President in 1990-1991 and editor-in-chief of the IFT’s peer-reviewed journals (Journal of Food Science, Journal of Food Science Education, and Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Technology)since 2003 up to the present. Currently, he is President-elect of the International Academy of Food Science and Technology (IAFoST 2008-2010). Dr. Lund is a recipient of numerous local and international awards. His most prestigious awards include the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) - Fellow (1980), International Award (1995), Carl R. Fellers Award (2003), and in 2009, Dr. Lund was honored as the recipient of the Nicholas Appert Award, IFT's highest honor given annually to an IFT member for preeminence in and contributions to the field of food science and technology. He was awarded the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (IAFIS-FPEI) Food Engineering Award (1987) and was distinguished as Fellow of the International Academy of Food Science and Technology (IAFoST Charter member: 1999). After 40 years of service to the university, Dr. Lund was recognized by the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences on August 10, 2006 for creating the chaired professorship in the Department of Food Science and the Food Science Excellence Fund. In 2006, he received the Ohio State University Food Science Harris Award.
