I am a public health microbiologist with experience in both academia and front-line public health.
I hold a bachelor of science in Applied Microbiology from the University of Strathclyde, a master of Public Health from Cardiff University and a doctorate in Applied Biology from the University of Hull. I am a Fellow of the Royal Society for Public Health.
Before taking up my current position at Toronto Met, I was head of the Food, Water and Environmental Service of Public Health Wales.
My major research interest is investigating the microbiological contamination of ready-to-eat food at the point of sale and consumption, with an emphasis on monitoring major food-borne pathogens.
