I am a Research Scientist II in the Midwest Grape and Wine Industry Institute, housed in the department of Food Science and Human Nutrition. My graduate work through the department of Plant Pathology and Microbiology focuses on the association between the apiculate, weakly fermentative yeast Hanseniaspora uvarum and grapevines (Vitis spp.). As a predominant surface-dwelling grape yeast, H. uvarum is potentially a key driver of microbially-influenced terroir (regional typicity) in wine.
