My research focuses on the ecology and epidemiology of bacterial foodborne pathogens in the pre-harvest environment. I work on the development of strategies to prevent the infection of food-producing animals and the microbial contamination of fruits and vegetables. These studies are applicable to domestic and international food production systems. I also research prevention of waterborne diseases. Pathogens of interest include: E. coli O157 and other Shiga toxin-producing E. coli, Salmonella, and Clostridium difficile.
