Do You Know What You’re Eating?

Carleton University chemistry researcher Yaxi Hu’s Food Analytical Chemistry and Technology (FACT) Lab is helping us understand what we’re actually eating. She is developing portable, easy-to-use testing techniques for assessing food safety, quality and authenticity.

Yaxi’s interdisciplinary research program aims at integrating advanced analytical chemistry, nanomaterials, microfluidic “lab-on-a-chip” platform, bioinformatics and machine learning to develop the next generation techniques for food analysis and thus to better ensure the food safety, quality and authenticity from farm to fork.
