Research Expertise My primary research interest is using the concept of carbohydrate and water supply and demand balance, and the techniques for gas exchange, water and other bio index monitoring, and computer modeling, to intergrate whole tree physiology in fruit crops. Currently I am working on Asian pears and grapes.
My another research interst is small fruits, including strawberries, blueberries, kiwifruit, blackberries, figs, etc. My goal is to establish the cultivation sytem of these popular small fruit crops in Taiwan's subtropical climate by understanding their phsyiology and developing low chill cultivars
