My main research and teaching area is the identification of odour active substances in food, beverages and food contact material. Beside an excellent analytical equipment for these compounds we use a highly trained sensory panel to link the informations of both techniques.

2011 I will organize the international conference "In Vino Scientia Analytica" in Graz, Austria.

This symposium is a continuation of a successful series of conferences. This international meeting aims to gather researchers, enologists and professionals dedicated to the different aspects of production: from environmental concerns to vines, grapes, and final products, establishing a forum to discuss and present the latest developments of Analytical Chemistry.

Additionally 2011 will be the 200 year anniversary of the Graz University of Technology
