Research Interests

The food safety research I am involved in is directly related to applied meat industry type applications affecting the production of meat and poultry products. A few of the key areas of interest include alternative curing food safety, thermal processing food safety, shelf stability, and sodium reduction. My research includes a combination of quality and safety interests and implications technologies and ingredients have on affecting these elements.
