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 research of applying edible mushroom extract in foods for improving safety and quality.
