I came to Massey University after 20 years with Fonterra (New Zealand’s largest dairy manufacturer) as a food microbiologist. There I learned much about New Zealand's leading food industry, participating in problem solving and evaluating rapid methods for microbial analysis covering aspects of food safety and food spoilage. I have developed specialist research interests in biofilms, (which I studied for my PhD), spore formation, alternative methods for cleaning, sanitation and new processing technologies. I really enjoy teaching along with my passion for science.
