My research interests focus on identification of aroma and flavor compounds in food systems, characterization of aroma/flavor formation pathways, convenient synthesis of highly unstable odorants, and applying novel engineering solutions to existing difficulties in flavor manufacturing. My recent interests also extend to understanding the relationship between instrumental flavor analysis and sensory evaluation.
