Sam was working with New York State dairy plants to detect and characterize the bacteria in their milk responsible for post-pasteurization contamination and spoilage. His project's goal is to implement corrective actions at the plant level that will improve the quality and shelf-life of fluid milk by reducing the instance of post-pasteurization contamination. As an undergrad, he worked with Stephanie Masiello (Ph.D. candidate) to biochemically characterize coliform isolates obtained from pasteurized fluid milk sampled through the Voluntary Shelf Life Program.
