Biography :

I’ve joined at KFRI since 1995 after completion of doctoral degree in food chemistry and post-doctoral training at Kansas State University. I have worked with great enthusiasm and endeavor for developing functional food or pharmaceutical ingredients from animal and plant resources and commercializing them. Currently, I’m interested in developing the system inferring functional properties of natural extracts (Bio-FINE). The system is based on bio-information that can be extracted by comparing differently expressing genes between normal and natural extracts fed animals. Through the system, various functional properties of single as well as combinatorial natural extracts can be ranked and further utilized for commercialization.

Research Interest :

- Developing bi-informatics based functionality inference system for natural extracts - Investigating bio-functional properties of natural extracts - Increasing bioavailability of phytochemicals - Increasing functional properties of phytochemicals by bio-conversion - Developing multi-Lab-on-a-chips
