Wine microbiology researcher and undergraduate educator, Viticulture and Enology Program, Cornell University

Kathleen Arnink is an experienced wine microbiology researcher and undergraduate educator. She teaches in the Viticulture and Enology Program in Cornell University's Department of Food Science, where she has developed courses for the new viticulture and enology major. She also coordinates internship opportunities in the wine industry and works to provide research experiences for students.

Arnink previously worked as a research associate in wine microbiology with Dr. Thomas Henick-Kling at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York. Her research specialty was the microbial ecology of yeasts and bacteria found in wine.

Through her work at the Station, Arnink acquired practical winemaking experience, both with small research lots and through collaborative studies with commercial wineries in New York. In addition, she gained extensive exposure to both commercial winemakers and the unique winemaking issues of the Finger Lakes region, and she completed research toward her PhD.

Arnink has also developed and taught courses in evolutionary biology, genetics, microbiology, and enology at Wells College in Aurora, New York.
