Our vision and objective:  Our lab uses cutting-edge technologies (e.g., fMRI-compatible olfactometry; GC-Olfactometry; eye-tracking) to investigate multi-sensory system and its relationships with human behaviour. We are particularly passionate about research of sensory effects and interactions with healthy eating behaviour. In terms of teaching, we strive to provide world-class sensory training to undergraduate and postgraduate students. We are proud of our students who are employed by leading food companies all over the world.
