FAYETTEVILLE, Ark – Jean-François Meullenet has been named interim director of the
Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station of the University of Arkansas System Division
of Agriculture, effective Dec. 11.
Mark Cochran, vice-president-agriculture for the system and head of the Division of
Agriculture, on Wednesday announced Meullenet’s appointment to succeed Clarence Watson,
who retires at year’s end. The Agricultural Experiment Station, headquartered in Fayetteville,
is the research arm of the Division of Agriculture, and has 13 research centers and
stations across Arkansas. The stations’ research findings are then transferred to
the public through the Cooperative Extension Service.
“I know I still have a lot to learn about the breadth of our programs and plan to
spend the first few months bettering my understanding of all aspects of our research
through departmental and unit visits,” he said. “I also look forward to working closely
with Bumpers College and Extension as we partner on various projects.”
A native of France, Meullenet earned a master of science in Food Engineering from
the National Superior School of Agronomy and Food Science in Nancy, and a PhD in Food
Science and Technology from the University of Georgia. He joined the Division of Agriculture
as an assistant professor of Food Science in 1996. He has published 117 articles in
refereed journals and has made more than 150 presentations, in addition to advising
numerous masters and PhD students.
Since 2006, Meullenet has held the Tyson Foods Endowed Distinguished Professorship
in Sensory Science and is a 2013 graduate of LEAD21, a national leadership program.
