    Prof Steve Flint

    Professor of Food Safety and Microbiology & Team Leader Food Bioscience - School of Food and Advanced Technology

    I came to Massey University after 20 years with Fonterra (New Zealand’s largest dairy manufacturer) as a food microbiologist. There I learned much about New Zealand's leading food industry, participating in problem solving and evaluating rapid methods for microbial analysis covering aspects of food safety and food spoilage. I have developed specialist research interests in biofilms, (which I studied for my PhD), spore formation, alternative methods for cleaning, sanitation and new processing technologies. I really enjoy teaching along with my passion for science.

    Dr Jason Hindmarsh

    Senior Lecturer - School of Food and Advanced Technology

    My general research area is food physics. I enjoy uncovering the molecular processes that drive the physical and chemical changes occurring in food during manufacture and storage. My current area of emphasis is in the application of magnetic resonance techniques to analyse physical and chemical changes in foods and biological materials. The other area is non-newtonian fluids in food engineering. Currently investigating non-newtonian fluid behaviour during spraying drying.

    Senior Lecturer - School of Food and Advanced Technology

    My teaching is mainly in the area of disease progression and diagnosis. My research is focused on using cell and animal models to study the effects of food and food components on human health and disease.  I am currently supervising PhD students who are researching the effects of greenshell mussels, capsacain, curcumin, and lycopene in inflammation, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and Alzheimer's disease.

    I am also the general manager of Massey's small animal research unit, and the health and safety compliance person for the School of Food and Advanced Technology.
