Jennifer Norka is an undergraduate studying to earn her B.S. in Food Science with a minior in Foods and Nutrition, and has an anticipated graduation date of May 2018. She became a part of the Lindemann lab in Fall 2016 due to her interest in microbiology and its impact on food systems and health. Her role in the lab involves assisting in studying the chemical complexity of polysaccharides, and their gut microbiome interaction. As her time progresses in the lab, she wants to begin studying the effects of food additives and their impact on health mediated by the gut microbiome. Following graduation, she plans to pursue a masters degree and a career in food safety and regulation.
