My major research is in the area of food safety including the development of rapid detection and disinfection of foodborne pathogens. The rapid detection of foodborne pathogens includes developing special procedures for sample preparation, immunoassay, molecular biological assay and detection of Listeria monocytogenes, E. coli O157:H7, and Salmonella in foods. I am also working on the development of biosensors through collaboration with other chemists and engineers at Auburn University for guarding our food supply system. In the disinfection of foodborne pathogens, I am focusing on non-thermal sterilization treatments, such as recombinant proteins, chlorine dioxide, electrolyzed water, N-halamine, and ultrasonication either individually or in combination to eliminate microorganisms in foods in order to increase food quality and shelf life. I am also working on the research of applying edible mushroom extract in foods for improving safety and quality.
