A typical day at work looks like…
I am currently researching how the native microflora in soft cheeses (i.e., Brie) interacts with the common foodborne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes.
My future goals are…
My hope is to develop a cheese starter culture with antilisterial properties.
My degree has helped me get to where I am today by…
The education received during my time at Carleton University developed the required foundation for entering into cutting-edge research in food safety engineering.
My advice for current students is…
