My major area of interest is Food safety especially, development of rapid detection techniques for food borne pathogens. Currently I am working on development of rapid serological detection technique for Vibrio vulnificus from oysters. Beside food safety I am also interested and worked in the other areas of food science like food product development and food chemistry.
