Research Areas:
Research in my lab is aimed at improving the quality and health-promoting properties of cereal grains and their products, with particular emphasis on whole grains and dietary fibers. Our approaches are to:

  • Develop methodologies for evaluation of end-use quality and chemical composition of whole grains
  • Determine how differences in chemical and physical properties of whole grains influence end-use quality
  • Identify grain components with potentially health-promoting properties using in vitro approaches
  • Determine the impact of whole grain- and dietary fiber-containing foods on diet-related disease prevention in human and animal trials
