“Food is everything. It represents culture, history, family, and has the power to trigger various emotions. My interest in food safety stems from my experience in the restaurant industry and studying biology throughout my undergraduate career. Understanding the characteristics and behaviors of certain food borne pathogens is essential in mitigating risk and ensuring a safe food supply.”
