My name is Essam Otefi, and I grew up in Egypt’s beautiful coastal city of Alexandria. I earned my veterinary medicine degree from Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Alexandria University in 1999. I currently work as a Supervisory Public Health Veterinarian (SPHV) for the United States Department of Agriculture-Food Safety Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS). I have over a decade of food safety work related experience, and I enjoy working autonomously and as a part of a multidisciplinary team of food safety scientists.
