Since receiving a PhD degree in 2000 from Lincoln University in Canterbury, New Zealand I have been working as research Scientist in Viticulture and Oenology for Plant and Food Research while teaching viticulture and statistics as Adjunct Lecturer for Lincoln University and The Nelson Marlborough institute of Technology (NMIT) in Blenheim, New Zealand. My main research subjects are Viticulture, Vine water use, Sustainability, Carbohydrate partitioning and Vineyard management analysis, all related to wine quality. In September 2018 I started as associate professor at Bordeaux Sciences Agro, a French ‘Grand École’ for agricultural engineering, while on a one year sabbatical from Plant and Food Research. As the coordinator and lecturer for the newly started Bachelor program at BSA I am also involved in teaching in the MBS program at BSA. My research interest is mainly in vineyard management and its influences on wine quality.
