I have always been passionate about design and development of natural products whether as preservatives, additives and or natural health products for the prevention and treatment of infections, cancer and chronic diseases like metabolic impairments including diabetes and obesity or conditions as simple as chronic gastritis. My past research investigates the health effects of various natural materials on different disorders and diseases. My studies propose the beneficial effects of natural compounds on sore throat, gastritis, hypertension, and inflammation. I am generally interested in natural health products with particular emphasis on the phytochemicals and peptides, pre-, pro-, and post-biotics, and evaluation of their bioactivities in various experimental settings (including in-silico analysis) as well as product development. In particular, my future research interests are shaped by the emerging trend towards functional foods, nutraceuticals, and cosmeceuticals as well as drug design and discovery. Communities now more than ever are interested in health effects or multi-faceted character of what they ingest as food and drug or consume as cosmetics. Additionally, communities are interested in valorization of agricultural and food processing discards keeping the residual material and compounds in production and consumption.
