COMMUNICATION
FOOD SAFETY
and proces s ing methods "
and
" qualitative research methods " are
among the main areas of her focus.
She's also worked on research for
improving the safety of fresh produce
and low-moisture foods.
Arnold has bachelor's and master's
degrees in food science from North
Carolina State University and a
Ph.D. from Virginia Tech University.
Produce Processing recently caught
up with Arnold to talk food safety
and communication.
Produce Processing: Could
you share a little about your
background?
After completing my doctorate
in Food Science & Technology at
Virginia Tech, I transitioned into a
role as an assistant professor at East
Carolina University in the Department
of Nutrition Science. My research
is focused on food safety at the
intersection of how food information
is effectively communicated to groups
Nicole Arnold
of people. Whether it is through verbal
communication, food labels, or in
popular media, food-related messages
are everywhere. Unfortunately, food
safety and risk messages often do
not achieve their intended purpose.
I enjoy working with consumers and
small retailers to help bridge gaps in
communication and practices between
various sectors. In addition to my
research responsibilities, I teach an
undergraduate food science course
and lab.
What projects are you currently
working on?
I have continued to conduct research
and develop materials for a USDANIFA
grant, titled " Enhancing the
Safety and Quality of Fresh Produce
and Low-Moisture Foods by Waterless
Non-Thermal Technologies. " Drs. Renee
Boyer and Lily Yang from Virginia
Tech lead the outreach initiatives
for this project. The three of us have
worked together to assess consumer
knowledge, perceptions, and potential
purchasing behaviors associated
with conventional and emerging
food processing technologies. It is
imperative to understand barriers
that may play a role in consumer
