Expert has conducted research to improve the quality of common beans such as to improve storage methods and develop methods to assess the quality of stored beans. He has expertise in the composition, protein digestibility, cooking, and processing quality of beans. He has extensive problem solving experience with regard to flavor and texture problems in processed bean products. In his thesis, Expert explored the effect of post-blanch treatment on volatiles recovered and the flavor of frozen peas and green beans.

Expert has conducted both fundamental synthetic and applied food product development research with the saccharide fatty acid polyester fat substitutes. He is familiar with synthetic fat substitutes and the other fat replacers prepared from carbohydrates, proteins, cellulose, or pectin. Additionally, he knowledgeable of reduced and lowfat cheese technology.

Expert has extensive experience and expertise in evaluating and interpreting scanning electron micrographs (SEMs). He has particular expertise with SEM of plant material and dairy products.

Expert initiated research on the nonthermal food processing potential of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP), high intensity pulsed electric fields (PEF) and oscillating magnetic field technologies. The nonthermal processing technologies are relatively new and involve inactivation of microorganisms and enzymes to improve the shelf-life of foods. He also has expertise in engineering food microbiology (safety) and quality aspects of HHP and pulsed electric field pasteurization.

Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Spokane, Washington - Kennewick, Washington
