Testing times

As an expert in food safety, Emma Bradley (Chemistry 1992, PhD Bio-organic Chemistry 1996) helps protect the UK’s food chain. Emma leads a team of 100 scientists who research food safety and food fraud. They test for biological and chemical contaminants in food before it reaches our plates. She is Head of Food Quality and Safety at Fera Science, a large organisation that aims to support and develop a sustainable food chain and protect the global community from biological and chemical risks. Along with her expertise in analytical chemistry, Emma’s job calls for a detailed knowledge of national and international food regulations.
