M. A. "Andy" Rao is Professor Emeritus of Food Engineering at Cornell University. He received the Life Achievement Award of the International Association of Engineering and Food in 2011; the Scott Blair Award for Excellence in Rheology from the American Association of Cereal Chemists; the Distinguished Food Engineering Award from the American Society of Agricultural Engineers; and was elected a Fellow of the Institute of Food Technologists. Dr. Rao helped develop the "Vane Method" measurement of yield stress for a variety of food products, which is a standard measurement tool used by the food industry today. He has actively supported and promoted food engineering through cooperative professional teaching and research activities in Brazil, India, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, and Thailand.
