Microbial communities play a pivotal role in human and animal productivity as well as overall wellbeing. Understanding and modelling the naturally occurring complex microbial communities of gut and indigenously fermented foods and might have a potential to enhance the productivity and prevent various diseases. I'm interested in the development of food and feed based bio-therapeutics with wide array of applications for human and animals. More precisely, the areas of interests are:
Understanding the Microbial Diversity of Indigenous Fermented Foods and Human Gut.
Development of Biotherapeutics for humans and animals.
Formulation of microbial starters for antagonism and detoxification in food ecosystem.
I teach subjects related to microbiology, especially Food and Nutrition and industrial microbiology at Graduate and undergraduate level.
