Biography

Paull has been involved for over 30 years in research and teaching, and as a consultant to commercial companies, and national and international programs. His area of research interest is in the postharvest handling and storage of tropical fruits, vegetables and ornamentals with a focus on quality and postharvest life of tropical commodities that is determined in large measure by preharvest growing conditions and crop management. The research has lead to improvement in production practices, and the post harvest handling and marketing of these products. All the research has been done in conjunction and support of local industries and individual growers, shippers and markets.
