Specifically, my team’s focus is on intervention strategies for controlling human pathogens associated
with fermented and acidified vegetables; and improved processes for the preservation and utilization
of vegetables, including cucumber, sweet potato, cabbage and peppers to produce safe, high quality
products with reduced energy use and waste.
