Matt was interested in improved quantitative tools for food safety risk analysis. His range of projects included (a) quantitative microbial risk analysis of the impact of pasteurization temperature changes on the safety of fluid milk, (b) using machine learning analysis and whole genome sequencing to identify persistent bacteria contamination in food-associated environments, and (c) field work in Kenya in which he worked on developing a low-cost optical sorter to remove mycotoxin contaminated maize kernels from consumer food supplies.
