TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I develop the curriculum of various courses from hundreds of papers and books.

Food Microbiology (MS and MS-PhD)

This course was designed to extend the student’s knowledge and understanding of the attributes of micro-organisms and the applications of modern techniques in food microbiology and food safety. Topics include microbiology of food, food-borne diseases, food spoilage, fermentation of food and modern microbial analysis techniques relating to food.

Industrial Biotechnology (PhD)

This course was created to provide graduates with the advanced conceptual understanding, and specialized technical skills for them to follow successful careers as scientists in the biotechnology industry. The training given also forms an excellent introduction to microbiology, molecular biology and bioinformatics for the students opting to follow a research orientated career path.
