Dr Davies has studied various aspects of fruit development including the molecular processes involved in grape berry colour and flavour accumulation, sugar transport and metabolism and potassium transport. Of particular interest is the role of plant growth regulators in controlling the onset and progression of berry ripening and harvest timing.
