Research Interests:
While much of our focus in the past few years has been on waterborne protozoan parasites such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia, we know that they and several other species of waterborne protozoa can spread through contaminated foods as well. Moreover, we continue to be interested in the survival and inactivation of protozoa on food contact surfaces, and more recently, we have become actively involved in studying removal/inactivation of protozoan parasites on hands with particular focus on foodhandlers.
