Clint Fairow earned a B.S. in Zoology with a Chemistry Minor and a M.S. in Environmental Biology from Eastern Illinois University Charleston IL and pursued post-graduate studies in Toxicology at the University of Illinois Urbana IL. He is currently finishing a Master’s Degree in Public Health through the University of Illinois-Springfield. He is the Global Food Defense Manager at Archer Daniels Midland Company in Decatur, IL. His work since late 2010 has focused on assessing the risk of intentional adulteration of the foods produced using a probabilistic risk assessment model which incorporates information on physical and chemical limitations of potential contaminants and the processing parameters to which they would be subjected. This work has involved many interesting aspects of risk vs. vulnerability, the likelihood a colleague would be motivated to commit an intentional adulteration with the intent to kill consumers and what would serve as a threshold for risk requiring mitigation.
