Researcher interests: Biochemistry and physiology of the chemical senses and their relevance to food and nutrition. Sweet and bitter taste transduction. Molecular basis for the lingering aftertaste produced by non-sugar sweeteners and bitter tastants. Chemical mechanisms for the formation of aroma compounds and off-flavors during food processing.
