Research Description

My research is focused on developing improved processing technologies for plant-derived polyphenols of interest as food constituents. I am particularly interested in the development of industrial-scale processes for extraction and purification of 3-deoxyanthocyanidins from a unique cultivar of sorghum that accumulates high concentrations of these compounds.
