Jiyoon’s research focuses on microbiological food safety coupled with mathematical modeling. She is currently working on a collaborative USDA food safety project to eliminate cross-contamination during washing of fresh produce. She does both experimental research and mathematical modeling using different tools such as COMSOL Multiphysics and MATLAB to build up a computational simulation model involving microbiology, chemical reactions, and fluid dynamics.
