AMES, Iowa — A researcher in food safety and grain quality has joined Iowa State University (ISU) in the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering.

Gretchen Mosher, assistant professor of agricultural and biosystems engineering, will have duties in teaching and research.

"Dr. Mosher’s research and teaching expertise will help our department to continue to address important State of Iowa and regional issues related to grain quality and food safety," said Steve Mickelson, chair of the agricultural and biosystems engineering department.

Mosher earned a doctorate in industrial and agricultural technology in 2011, a master’s degree in family and consumer sciences education and a bachelor’s degree in consumer food science, all from Iowa State.

She teaches several courses related to grain quality and quality management. Mosher also coordinates senior-level industrial technology and agricultural system technology students enrolled in the technology capstone course, which requires students to apply their classroom knowledge to real-world issues in a business environment. She also serves as the department’s director of undergraduate services, which includes supervising its academic advisers.

Mosher’s research is focused on food safety and grain quality risks that impact human and animal food safety and security; processes that maximize grain quality and food system safety for humans and animals; and the best ways to teach complex and unfamiliar topics in science and technology.
