Research Focus

My overall research program focuses on developing technologies that improve the quality, safety, and potential applications of fermented dairy products and co-products. My current projects explore: i)the applications of bacteriophage to improve health, dairy safety, and fermentation performance; ii) the use of natural cultures and enzymes to enhance product shelf life and safety; and iii) novel applications for co-products of dairy fermentations.
