Positions

Overview

  • Our laboratory works closely with water utilities, engineers, and the Environmental Protection Agency in designing studies that help predict the fate of pathogen removal or survival. Many projects begin at the bench level using both pathogens and indicator organisms and then proceed to the field where the use of surrogate organisms helps us understand the overall fate of waterborne pathogens.

    Over the last 20 years I have also been the Science Advisor for the Winchester Engineering and Analytical Center of the FDA outside of Boston MA. Our primary focus over the last several years has been the detection of food borne pathogens and the development of methods to aid in the detection of adulterated food products.
