Biographical details

Mark Bradbury is a postdoctoral research associate in the ARC Training Centre for Food Safety in the Fresh Produce Industry in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences. He specialises in assessing and mitigating against microbiological hazards in foods and food systems.

Prior to joining the University of Sydney, he worked for the CSIRO as a microbiologist in the Food Safety and Stability Group for over 10 years, during which he completed his PhD through the University of Ballarat. He has extensive research experience in a broad range of food safety projects working across industry, government and academia, focused on delivering translational research outcomes for food producers.

Research interests

Mark has a broad range of research interests relating to food safety and quality in fresh produce and food in general. In particular the use of genomics to explore the evolution of foodborne pathogens (Listeria monocytogenes and Clostridium botulinum) in contemporary food production systems, assessing the efficacy of novel intervention strategies and predictive modelling of foodborne pathogens through distribution chains.
