Dr Fiona Kerslake

Dr Fiona Kerslake is Head of Horticulture at the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA). A University of Tasmania (UTAS) undergraduate in Agricultural Science, after a break working overseas, Fiona returned to UTAS to study for her PhD. Her initial research focus was on Pinot noir and sparkling wine viticulture, however a lack of objective analytical methods for sparkling wine led to Fiona developing capacity in wine analytical chemistry. She has transferred this knowledge to help support and develop the burgeoning local craft cider industry.
