Areas of Specialization/Research

My research interest and activity have been focused on food engineering aspects with emphasis on (1) design and development of the unit operation for food processing, (2) processing food materials into value added- products, (3) preservation and packaging of foods which include coating, edible film, and micro-encapsulation, (4) thermal, rheological, and functional properties of functional ingredients and foods, (5) utilization of agricultural processing wastes, (6) optimization of processing conditions, and (7) development of non-food materials from biological wastes including bio-diesel.
