What We Do

 

Our projects include:

  • Control of foodborne pathogenic bacteria including antibiotic resistant strains using various technologies and multiple hurdle approach

  • Natural antimicrobials and their applications in organic foods, plant antimicrobial washes for fresh produce, antimicrobial and anti-oxidative activities of plant compounds

  • Bacterial attachment and biofilm formation in food production environments

  • Survival and prevalence of foodborne pathogens in fresh produce growing environments/organic composts 

  • Stress tolerance responses of foodborne pathogenic bacteria
