Emma’s primary areas of expertise are:
She is also an author of > 30 peer reviewed scientific publications on food contact materials.
Fera is the UK National Reference Laboratory for Materials and Articles in Contact with Food. Food contact materials testing is used worldwide to make sure that food is not contaminated by any of the products it comes into contact with.

Surveillance of the main classes of contaminants that are regulated in
the human and animal feed supply chain. These include; heavy metals,
pesticides, veterinary medicines, dioxins/PCBs, PAHs and mycotoxins.
With many years of experience carrying out pesticides residue testing, we can assist with any upcoming and emerging issues. The majority of pesticides can be analysed by multi-residue screening methods.
Our experts focus on the scientific research relating to intentionally added food components and to those arising from chemical changes during food processing, bioactive chemicals and natural toxicants.
Non-Intentionally Added Substances (NIAS) are chemical compounds that are present in food contact material but have not been added for a technical reason during the production process
