    We have secured Linda Harris to be our keynote speaker for our food safety workshop. More information about Linda Harris’ research and publications can be found here - https://foodscience.ucdavis.edu/people/linda-harris
    Dr. Harris’s research focuses on microbial food safety emphasizing the microbiology of fresh fruits and vegetables and tree nuts. She works to develop and validate standard microbiological methods and uses these methods to evaluate the behavior of food borne pathogens on fruits, vegetables and tree nuts under different storage and processing conditions. She uses these methods to evaluate antimicrobial treatments including various sanitizers and thermal processes for their efficacy in reducing microbial populations on various cut and intact produce and tree nut surfaces.

    More speakers TBA soon! Check back soon for more updates!
