Taylor, Thomas individual record
Associate Professor
overview

Dr. Taylor's primary research interests are in the utilization and mechanisms of food antimicrobials to inhibit bacterial foodborne pathogens. Natural food antimicrobials are diverse in their chemistry, spectrum of activity, sources, and applications within foods. Specifically, research is conducted to investigate and determine the manner by which food antimicrobials inhibit microbial pathogens. Additionally, research is conducted that seeks to overcome obstacles to the use of food antimicrobials in some product by the encapsulation of food antimicrobials. Dr. Taylor regularly interacts with faculty in the Departments of Horticultural Sciences, Nutrition and Food Science, Poultry Science, and even Chemical Engineering in the development and completion of research programming.
