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: More information can be found on the funder’s database.

Simulating Large-Number Bulk-Product Sampling to Improve Food Safety Sampling Plans

A two-year externally funded project by: This project will build a simulation model to solve the problem of how to best take many samples of bulk products for food safety testing. That way, industries can use that knowledge to create sampling plans, and sampling devices, for their products that achieve important food safety goals. The […]
