Research and/or Extension Activities:
Areas of interest include applied research on the evaluation of ingredients, assessment of processes, and development of strategies to reduce/prevent contamination of final products with mycotoxins and bacterial pathogens; the development of quality control mechanisms; and HACCP assistance focusing on food, dairy and feed products. Extension activities include technical advice and training, as well as preparation of guidelines, protocols, standard operating procedures and related technical documents for improvement of safety and quality of food and pet food processes.
