This line of work has been mainly a collaborative effort with other technical disciplines (e.g., food science, crop and soil science, horticulture) on campus and also with national and international food and consumer product companies. The nature of this research is collaborative and exploratory with other scientists and/or industry clients, using sensory evaluation as a tool.
