Xiaonan Lu

Associate Professor
Food Safety Engineering
Faculty of Land and Food Systems

Xiaonan works on developing innovative and rapid sensing technologies, instrumentation systems, and other detection methods for ensuring food safety and preventing food bioterrorism. His five directional research focus is:

  1. Developing sensor and nano-based single-molecule biophotonics to rapidly detect chemical and microbiological hazards in food systems.
  2. Campylobacter-associated food safety.
  3. Food microbiology
  4. Characterization of emerging foodborne viruses, nanoscopic optical imaging for contagious virus tracking and virus-host cell interaction investigation.
  5. Detection of food fraud and adulteration.
