Research Interests

  • Research interests have included food microbiology, especially the use of molecular and cultural methods to diagnose pathogens in food (milk and dairy products).                                                                                                                                                                                              
  • A long-term interest of mine is molecular epidemiology of staphylococcal and streptococcal infections of dairy cattle.                           
  • Another related interest is mastitis in dairy cattle caused by the environmental organism, Streptococcus uberis. This disease causes loss of milk production, with serious economic impact on the dairy industry worldwide.
