Current Research

My research involves understanding physical and chemical product-consumer interactions at the macromolecular level, with specific interest on the effect of flavour ingredients on mucosal surfaces. Two major application areas include:

1) Release of flavour compounds through understanding ingredient-mucus interactions

2) Identifying interactions which have an adverse effect on mucus structure and function.

I also contribute to other research on Analytical Ultracentrifugation at the NCMH (National Centre for Macromolecular Hydrodynamics) and to research projects in the Flavour Group and the Biomaterials Group within the Departament.
