Professor of Postharvest Technology
Massey Institute of Food Science and Technology
As Director of the Centre for Postharvest and Refrigeration Research I lead a large team of postharvest graduate students working to optimise fruit, vegetable and cut flower storage. Our group has significant external funding, in the general area of maintaining quality or predicting quality changes for perishable fresh products. My research interests have moved from my personal expertise in cell physiology to a more strategic interest in connecting science to growth of the horticulture sector based on novel, high-value niche products. I am increasingly working on programmes relating fruit and vegetable consumption to human health.
