His research program is in the following three broad areas of postharvest pathology: (1) Integrated systems for the control of postharvest decay and spoilage microbes in whole produce and in fresh-cut applications, (2) Integrating basic and practical applications of cultural, genetic, and energetic technologies to achieve and maintain postharvest quality through transportation and distribution. (3) Developing diagnostic tools and methods that are predictive of predisposition to loss of postharvest quality or spoilage.
