Research Interests:

  • Structure-functionality-bioactivity relationships in cereals and cereal products
  • Effects of genetic and environmental variability on cereal composition related to improved sustainability, biodiversity and end-use quality
  • Development of novel analytical methods for compliance monitoring of gluten-free products
  • Proteomics to assess the immunoreactive potential of (cereal) proteins
  • Fundamental mechanisms of (wheat) allergies, non-celiac gluten sensitivity and celiac disease
