Parastoo Yaghmaee of Davis has joined RF Biocidics, a Vacaville food safety company, as director of process technology. RF Biocidics provides an environmentally friendly and chemical-free alternative for disinfection and disinfestation.

In her new role, Yaghmaee will work with the company’s clients on integrating its equipment into their food processing systems, allowing for customization according to each client’s needs. Yaghmaee also will help RF Biocidics continue to expand its global customer base, as well as lead research projects and the development of new designs as the company enhances its product line.

“RF Biocidics’ technology offers unprecedented flexibility for food processors that are seeking a natural, non-chemical way of disinfesting, disinfecting and pasteurizing their products,” Yaghmaee said in a news release. “I see a tremendous opportunity for RF Biocidics to expand the application of its technology, and widen the variety of foods, and therefore food companies, it works with. “

A Ph.D. graduate in food science from the University of British Columbia, Yaghmaee previously served as a senior scientist at EnWave Corp., where she collaborated with engineers on the design of new equipment in industrial process development. She also oversaw research at EnWave that included analyzing the effect of the company’s radiant energy vacuum dehydration technology on probiotics and food culture, as well as its impact on enzymes and antibodies.

During Yaghmaee’s more than two decades in the field of food science, she also served as a food quality control/quality assurance manager and a thermal process specialist, with responsibilities that included performing process validation as well as determining pasteurization and sterilization processes for companies.

RF Biocidics is a subsidiary of Boston-based private investment company Allied Minds.
