Ingham Lab

Research Interests

My lab group works with small and very small meat processors to identify methods to validate Critical Limits in the processing of meats. In addition, I conduct research into the effective use of technology in teaching and learning. I am also involved in studying issues that relate to consumer perceptions of food safety and health, and in the implementation of consumer education programs on food-related issues.
