Biography
Dr. Valeria Torok is currently a Research Scientist with the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), Food Safety and Innovation Group which is based at the Waite Campus in Adelaide, Australia. She completed her Bachelor of Science degree with a double major in microbiology/immunology and genetics from the University of Adelaide, followed by a PhD in plant virology in 2001. From 2001 to 2004 she worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Federal Biological Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry in Braunschweig, Germany. There she worked on a European Union funded collaborative project and characterised a new virus of agricultural importance in lettuce (Lettuce ring necrosis virus). Dr Torok commenced work at SARDI in 2004, as a molecular microbiologist, with a keen research interest in the role of gut microbiota in: poultry and other livestock production; gut health; ruminant greenhouse gas emission; and food safety. Dr Torok currently also leads projects developing naturally functional or value added produce (eggs and meat) through the use of livestock nutritional interventions. She also has research interests in the development of novel, rapid and sensitive diagnostics for foodborne hazards and foodborne virology. Her team has been instrumental in providing Australian capability for norovirus and hepatitis A virus testing in foods implicated in foodborne outbreaks. During her career Dr Torok has worked closely with both industry and regulatory bodies, and has formed multidisciplinary scientific collaborations both nationally and internationally.
