Biography

Research Statement

The focus of my research and extension program is the postharvest biology and technology of fruits, especially peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots, table grapes, figs, kiwifruits, olives, and persimmons, as well as pistachios, almonds and walnuts.

The goal of my research program is to develop a better understanding of the orchard factors and postharvest factors that control fruit flavor and shelf life and to develop technology to overcome fruit industry problems. I am applying genomic techniques to identify gene(s) responsible for fruit sensory attributes (both desirable and undesirable), and investigating physiological disorders such as chilling injury.

Ongoing Research Activities

  • Understanding the role of orchard factors that control fruit quality (flavor).
  • Understanding the role of environmental conditions during storage/transportation.
  • Developing systems to produce and deliver tasty fruit to consumers.
  • Understanding consumer preferences based on fresh fruit sensory attributes.
  • Understanding genetic control of fruit physiological disorders.
  • Developing markers assistant selection for important quality traits for peach.
  • Exploring non-destructive techniques to determine maturity and to measure fruit quality.
