Key Research Interests

  • Understanding of the chemical and physical parameters of plant-based products in relation to their structure and bioactivity.
  • How environmental and processing parameters of fruits and vegetables affect food quality and safety.
  • Palm oil – how its processing can become more environmentally friendly and how successfully it can be detected in food products through the use of rapid spectrometric methods.
  • Design of novel multivariate statistical methods to classify fingerprint data from omics of spectral technologies.
