My current research activity is looking at methods to improve the utilization of chemicals, water and energy in the cleaning systems used to wash milk from the pipelines on dairy farms. This involves the testing of various recycling and water reuse practices on a prototype cleaning system. I am also involved in the design and operation of several cooling chambers used in the study of frost effects on plant performance.
