Thermal Processes

The Institute of Food Safety and Health focuses on multiple thermal processes (traditional thermal processes such as dry heating, baking, etc. and advanced thermal processes such as microwave heating). Our staff are interested in understanding the thermal inactivation kinetics of pathogenic microorganisms, spoilage microorganisms, and enzymes. We also do significant amount of modeling and simulation related to thermal processes.
