Dr. Mis Solval obtained both M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees at Louisiana State University. Much of his Ph.D. study involved developing co-current and counter-current spray drying computational fluid dynamics (FD) simulations to predict the quality of fish oil microencapsulated with egg white hydrolysates powders.

When he was a student at LSU, Kevin also assisted Dr. Sathivel with several seafood processing projects including a method developed to improve peeling operation of shrimp. Kevin has published 17 manuscripts and given several presentations at the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) annual meetings. Kevin received first place for presenting a paper at the 2012 Graduate Student Paper competition of the IFT-Refrigerated and Frozen Division. In 2010, Kevin received a Louisiana Gulf Coast Section of the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) scholarship to attend the IFT Annual Meeting.
