  • Assessing responses of texture of processed potato products to different field, storage–and processing regimes, understanding the underlying mechanisms associated with fry texture of different genotypes
  • Investigation of potato post-harvest physiological mechanisms during storage, identifying early predictors of good long-term storage quality
  • Evaluating sugar end defect resistance across various genotypes, identifying in-season predictors of post-harvest sugar end defect severity and incidence
