My research interests primarily concern the chemistry of grapes and wine; in particular the chemical and sensory analysis of volatile and non-volatile components of organoleptic significance and the influence of environmental conditions, viticultural management practices and winemaking techniques on their biochemical formation and degradation. Current research projects include: (i) Oak derived flavour in wine and spirits; (ii) Viticultural management of 'green characters' in grapes and wine; (iii) Smoke taint in grapes and wine and (iv) Characterisation of grape berry tannins.
