James Hutton Institute
My research interests are in plant product quality especially in food applications. I have applied various analytical techniques, including metabolomics, to model how agronomy, climate, genotype or processing influences plant biochemistry and final product quality. I have a particular interest in determining how the levels of health beneficial components are genetically controlled in soft fruits. I have focused on polyphenols and their effects on human health. Relevant collaborations include work on phytochemicals that modulate cancer, neurodegenerative and cardiovascular models but also influence obesity and diabetes.
