Poučuje splošno in živilsko mikrobiologijo ter mikrobiološko varnost živil (BF-UL, SIFC, BOKU, Dunaj (A)). Na BF-UL je dolgoletna koordinatorica tematske mreže CEEPUS (“Za boljšo varnost hrane v EU”) in koordinatorica področja živilstvo doktorskega programa Bioznanosti. Mentorica ali somentorica 94 BSc, 31 MSc in 14 PhD študentom. Od l. 2014 vodi Katedro za biotehnologijo, mikrobiologijo in varnost živil na Oddelku za živilstvo, BF UL. Glavna področja raziskovalnega dela so mikrobna ekologija hrane in živilskih procesov, stresni odziv in mikrobiološka odpornost v proizvodnji hrane, naravne bioaktivne snovi in stranski proizvodi živilstva za izboljšanje varnosti, kakovosti in trajnosti živil. Vodenje ali sodelovanje pri več kot 30 raziskovalnih ali strokovnih nacionalnih ali mednarodnih projektih. Bibliografija: 870 enot COBISS, 130 originalnih in 6 preglednih znanstvenih člankov, h-index 24; 35 poglavij v monografijah ali univerzitetnih učbenikih.
