Research Interest

  1. Bio-inspired synthesis of hybrid nanomaterials for biomedical applications
    Development of green protocols for the synthesis of medically important nanostructures can induced a paradigm shift in biomedical sciences owing to their greater biocompatibility. We are trying to exploit bio-recourses for the synthesis of metallic and metal oxide nanoparticles. These nanoparticles have shown great potential as antifungal and anticancer agents.
  2. Nanocomposite based food packaging systems
    Development of nanoparticles embedded soft-nanocomposites based packaging systems may prove to be important in preservation and safety. We are particularly interested in developing packaging systems for increasing the shelf life of poultry and meat products.
