Xingchen finished his Bachelor and Master degree in viticulture and enology. He did research on aroma evaluation of wines fermented by mixed inoculation of S. cerevisiae and non-Saccharomyces yeasts during his master degree.
Now he is a PhD candidate in Department of Wine Science, School of AFW. He is supervised by A/Pro David Jeffery (david.jeffery@adelaide.edu.au), Dr Dimitra Capone (dimitra.capone@adelaide.edu.au), and Dr Aurélie Roland (aurelie.roland@supagro.fr). 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.
