Tom.Ross@utas.edu.au

Tom is an Associate Professor in food microbiology. His research involves development of knowledge, and its integration into mathematical models and computer software, to describe and predict the growth and death of bacteria in foods. That knowledge and those technologies are widely used by the Australian food industry and Australian and New Zealand government agencies. Tom's expertise is recognised and valued internationally as evidenced by his service on numerous expert consultations convened by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation's Joint Expert Committee on Microbial Risk Assessment (JEMRA), the International Commission on Microbiological Specifications for Foods (ICMSF), and International Committee on Predictive Modelling in Food.

Biography

Since graduating with his PhD in 1994, Tom has developed his career as a member, and active contributor to the development, of the Food Safety Centre in the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture at the University of Tasmania. The Centre is recognised internationally both for academic and practical contributions to microbial food safety assurance and has developed knowledge and computer programs that are used in the food industry and by government agencies to improve food safety and shelf life. Tom has written >130 scientific papers and book chapters on microbial behaviour in foods, with particular emphasis on application of predictive modelling and quantitative risk assessment to support food safety management.

Tom is active in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and training, including development of new units and courses. He has a particular interest in communicating the importance and benefits of science to the community and in teaching students to be able to communicate their knowledge in 'plain English'.   He has developed or contributed to numerous training courses on microbial food safety in Australia and internationally.  Tom has supervised or co-supervised 23 PhD graduates, most of whom now work in the food processing industry, for government food safety organisations, or as researchers and teachers.

Tom has been a member of numerous expert consultations on food safety risk assessment and risk management convened by the Australian government and industry organisations and, internationally, by the UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation and World Health Organisation. He often develops and contributes to international training workshops on food safety management, microbial risk assessment and statistical sampling schemes. He was appointed to permanent membership of the International Commission on Microbiological Specifications for Foods in 2007.

Research Themes

Tom's research contributes to several of the University's research themes including Environment, Resources and Sustainability; Data, Knowledge and Decisions and also Better Health.

Up to 20 to 30% of food produced globally is wasted through spoilage, mostly due to microbial growth. Given the Earth's growing human population and consequent stress on food production environments, research to minimise microbial food wastage can decrease this stress, and aid sustainability. It's also estimated that there are around 4 to 5 million cases of food-borne illness every year in Australia alone, mostly due to foodborne bacteria and viruses. While most of these illnesses are mild, there are about 100 deaths per year. Collectively foodborne illness is believed to cost Australians over $1 billion annually.

Tom's research involves studying populations of bacteria and other microbes to understand how their behaviour and responses is affected by the composition of the food and its storage environment with the aim to decrease the risk of foodborne illness and losses due to food wastage. The strategy involves developing a better understanding of microbial ecology and physiology to identify new ways to produce, process, and distribute foods that preserve their freshness as much as possible. That research leads to better products with longer shelf life and the ability to deliver high quality Tasmania and Australian foods to more distant markets thereby increasing export income and supporting sustainability of agricultural and food businesses. In parallel, that knowledge is used to find better ways to ensure the safety of foods which, apart from reducing the burden of foodborne illness, is essential for maintaining international market access and Australia's enviable reputation for clean, safe, food.

Typically the research involves systematic studies of specific microbes growing, or being inactivated, in foods or experimental systems that emulate foods. From those systematic studies, much data is generated and used to reveal reproducible patterns of behaviour. Those patterns are summarised in mathematical models that describe the observations and also our understanding of the mechanisms that control those responses. Once the models have been developed and tested, they can be incorporated into computer programs, e.g., like phone apps, and often requested by government or industry, that can be used to assess, and manage, the microbial safety and shelf life of the foods, including monitoring quality continuously through supply chains.

Much of the research has concerned the pathogens Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli in meat and meat products and, more recently, in raw milk cheeses but other pathogens and products are studied.  Research is currently underway to understand the mechanisms, and microbes, that cause the spoilage of fresh cut leafy salad vegetables to develop better ways to extend their shelf life.

Description
This project complements and extends a successful 2013 project that aims to offer (post-professional) training programs for Environmental Health Officers (and trainees). It seeks to modify the focus of training from laboratory based activities, microbial ecology and food microbiology to lecture-style presentations and Q&A sessions centred on environmental hazards (with particular focus on water microbiology and toxic algal blooms) and the legalities of Environmental Health regulation (including recent changes in the Food Act).

Description
This project will develop a software based foodsafety decision support tool that will be adopted by key Australian food safety regulatory authorities (Dairy Fodd Safety Victoria, New South Wales Food Authority, Food Standards Australia New Zealand and potentially others such TDIA) to evaluate applictions for the production of raw milk cheeses. This is an extension activity based on a program of externally funded research conducted within the Food Safety Centre across a number of projects.

Listeria Challenge Study in Fresh Bagged Salads: COLES (2014)$20,006
Description
This project will involve a challenge study and some associated protocol development. Protocol development for inoculation of salad leaves will be undertaken to devise an aseptic protocol to inoculate the salad leaves that: 1) minimises the amount of liquid added to each bag of salad leaves; 2) achieves even distribution of the inoculum across the salad leaves; 3) minimises structural damage to the salad leaves. The challenge study will occur on product supplied for inoculation, incubation and subsequent monitoring.

ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Innovative Horticultural Products: Adding value to horticulture value (2014 - 2016)$2,511,605
Description
Training Centre for Innovative Horticultural Products: Adding value to horticulture value chains from producer to consumer. This project will produce "industry-relevant" researchers and lead to more convenient and longer lasting fresh and fresh-like fruits and vegetables. The project will involve growers, food processors and a major retailer to increase industry productivity, expand markets for Australian foods, and increase choices of healthy products for consumers. This Centre will train a pool of researchers focussed on needs and opportunities in the Australian food industry through projects and formal training with active collaboration from food growers, processors and retailers. This training model and its graduates will enhance the capacity of Australia's fresh produce industry to innovate to meet consumer needs and develop opportunities in local and international markets, aiding Australia's food security and improving the industry's competitiveness.
