Areas of interest

With a background of Chemistry and Sensory Evaluation, I am an interdisciplinary researcher combining sensory science and chemical analysis. 

My research to date has focussed on the interactions between proteins and oral mucosa and how this influences mouthdrying sensations. This research incorporates the study of protein interactions, physicochemical analysis, saliva and oral processing, and the perception of texture and mouthfeel using temporal sensory methods.

I am also developing research in the areas of virtual reality and contextual cues in sensory perception.
