Ebenezer (EQ) is currently pursuing his PhD in Food Science. Prior to starting his PhD, he did his Master's degree in Biochemistry, Food Sciences and Nutrition from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. There, he undertook his master's thesis in the lab of Dr. Simon Michaeli in the Volcani Research Institute, where he investigated the impact of autophagy modulation in tomato fruit ripening. Here in Clemson University,EQ is working under the supervision of Prof. Karin Albornoz where he will look to continue his scientific adventure on investigating the molecular, biochemical, and physiological factors that determine the quality and shelf-life of produce. When EQ is not in the lab or in the greenhouse, he could be anywhere. Just out look for him.
