I am a PhD candidate in Environmental Health Sciences at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. I study how foodborne disease outbreaks happen and how public health agencies respond to them. I have dedicated my career to preventing foodborne diseases and improving the ability of governmental agencies and food producers to detect and end foodborne disease outbreaks.
“An Edible Disaster” is a blog that I created in September, 2011 to share my personal perspective on all things emergency preparedness, public health preparedness, foodborne disease outbreaks, food safety, environmental health, and epidemiology.
On a lighter note, I may rarely comment on other topics that interest me including food, travel, the outdoors, fitness, guitars, electronic music production, aviation, and cars.
