At the intersection of Food Science and Material Science lies opportunities for new technologies in Biomaterials and Biointerfaces. The Goddard Lab researches polymeric materials and coatings to improve food quality and food safety. Her group has synthesized polymers with specific biological functionality (e.g. enzymatic, antimicrobial/nonfouling, chelating) targeting applications in Food Packaging, Bioprocessing Materials, and Equipment Coatings. Specific applications include design of coatings and materials which improve food quality, sustainability, and food safety.
