Paw Dalgaard is Professor in Predictive Food Microbiology. He works with microbiological quality and safety of fresh and lightly preserved food. The overall aims of this research is to obtain insight into the quantitative microbiological ecology of fresh and lightly preserved food and to use this information for development of new methods and strategies to determine, predict and improve the safety and shelf-life of products. The Food Spoilage & Safety Predictor (FSSP) software has been developed to facilitate dissemination and application of results from the research group.
