Dr Heather Smyth
Heather Smyth is a flavour chemist and sensory scientist from the University of Queensland, who has been working with premium food-and-beverage products for more than 15 years. With a background in wine-flavour chemistry, her expertise is in understanding consumer enjoyment of foods and beverages in terms of sensory properties and composition. Heather has a special interest in describing and articulating food quality, in understanding the regional flavours of locally grown produce, and in modelling food flavour and textural properties using instrumental measurements. She also specialises in researching how human physiology, such as saliva and chewing behaviour, can impact sensory perception and, therefore, food choice.
