I am an academic/researcher in applied microbiology & plant pathology with specific focus on food safety and human pathogens. These areas include microbial biomes, pre- & postharvest microbiology, antimicrobial resistance & biocontrol, & mushroom biotechnology. The research includes, but not limited to, rapid molecular detection and source tracking of human pathogens, and gene expression analysis.
