Current Projects:

  1. Research: Characterizing the color compounds present in Rubaiyat wine as a function of skin contact time during fermentation.  This is a M.S. project for a food science graduate student.  It involves characterizing the pigments present in wines made from a variety of hybrid grape, Rubaiyat, originally developed at OSU.  The grape is notable for being deeply pigmented and for having pigments present in the pulp as well as the skin.  It shows promise particularly as a teinturier grape.  Current work involves the student becoming familiar with winemaking and analytical techniques in anticipation of the 2019 harvest.
  2. Extension:  Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training Course.  This one-day workshop provides a foundation of Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirements, and details on how to develop a farm food safety plan.  Link:
  3. Extension:  Better Process Control School.  This two or three-day workshop provide certification to supervisors of food canning operations on thermal processing systems, acidification and container closure evaluation, thus assuring compliance with mandatory USDA and FDA regulations for the prevention of health problems from low-acid and acidified canned foods.  Link:
