Tomas Matus is a post-doctoral fellow from Santiago de Chile, working on genomics and transcriptomics (a.k.a. functional genomics) of fruit crops such as grape and tomato.
In particular, he studies how to improve the quality of the fruits by increasing pigments, aromas and different types of antioxidants.
Although it’s quite related to his research project on grapevine, Tomas really likes wine tasting. During his PhD in Santiago de Chile, he became a professional sommelier, and since then he regularly gathers people for tasting and comparing wines from different countries.
