Postdoctoral Research Fellow
School of Agriculture, Food and Wine
Faculty of Sciences
Lukas has a master’s degree in food science and technology and continued to specialise in sensory science throughout his PhD which he successfully completed in 2014. In his positions as lecturer and postdoctoral researcher, he worked on a wide variety of food sensory related projects, ranging from the development and validation of sensory methods, over the investigation of consumers’ perception of food products, to food product development.
Lukas' current research focuses on:
- the investigation of consumers' sensory perception of food and wine and how these perceptions are related to consumers' preferences, emotions, and ultimately choice.
- linking the chemical composition of the products with their sensory properties.
- investigate how information and context (situation) influences consumers’ perception of food and wine.
- development and validation of new/rapid sensory methodologies to objectively characterise the sensory properties of wine.
