My specialties are non-destructive analysis of agricultural products and food using near-Infrared (NIR). Grains (rice, wheat, soybean), vegetables (green soybean), fruits (pear), dairy products ( goat milk) are our major concern. Also we included detection of concrete deterioration as a research theme. Picture is a dedicated spectrometer for green soybean with pod.
