My Research

Based in Dr. David Jeffery (A/P) wine chemistry lab in Wine Innovation Central at Waite Campus, Department of Wine and Food Science, I am currently working on chemistry of potent sulfur (S) compounds in wine as a PhD student (supported by CSC-UA, Wine Australia).

From a BS. and MEng. background in Food Science/Nutrition and Flavour Chemistry, I was brought onto the current project focusing on polyfunctional thiols (or varietal thiols) in wines. Using chemistry synthesis and analytical chemistry, the chirality, stereochemistry, and impacts from winemaking/viticulture on polyfunctional thiols have been investigated. More information on the project can be seen on the Publications page.

Besides research life, I spend time keeping heathy (working out), reading books, and writing stories. I am also a good listener and self-taught illustrator. Have a collaboration idea or even just a (good) story want to share, email me here:
