He is supervised by A/Pro David Jeffery (firstname.lastname@example.org), Dr Dimitra Capone (email@example.com), and Dr Aurélie Roland (firstname.lastname@example.org). They are working a project funded by Wine Australia, which focuses on looking for new varietal thiols in wines and new precursors for Varietal thiols in grapes using a variety of sample preparation techniques (i.e., LLE, SPE, SPME) and instrumental analysis techniques (i.e., GC-MS, HPLC-MS/MS). Influences on varietal thiols and their precursors from some winemaking practices will have also been explored.
