Improving Microbial Food Safety Through Engineering and Statistical Approaches in Food Microbiology

A five-year project funded by USDA NIFA Hatch funds which represented a significant portion of my group’s startup funds.

To support the long-term goal of developing a flexible applied food safety laboratory, Hatch funds will be used to support the following initial, discrete projects:

  • Genomics and Engineering Tools for Persistent Pathogen Identification and Control.
  • Single-Kernel Sorting to Remove Mycotoxins from Cereals.
  • Systems Approaches to Valuing Reductions in Foodborne Pathogen Contamination of Foods.
