Professor Adams is currently the chair of the department’s Scholarship Committee and serves on the Teaching Committee.

Dr. Adams’ research program focuses on grape berry ripening. He has concentrated his efforts in two principle areas: the biochemical changes that occur during ripening, and the development of tannins in skins and seeds of red wine varieties. The latter leads naturally into research related to the level of tannins in wines, and he has pursued that topic with students in the university’s graduate food sciences program whose primary interest is in winemaking.
