Education

Current Research

My research focuses on improving our understanding of bacterial foodborne pathogens to improve the safety of food for both the developed and developing world. Goals in my lab are to generate information that will (i) improve bacteriophage-based biocontrol and detection applications in food safety, (ii) improve our understanding of the ecology and evolution of bacterial foodborne pathogens, and (iii) improve our understanding of how the physiological state of bacterial foodborne pathogens affects their susceptibility to control interventions.
