    Research interests

    My research interests are primarily around human-nutrition and biochemistry. My primary task is to do research and prevent the double burden of malnutrition with several models.  Whilst the majority of my work has focused on child nutrition and nutrition support, I am also interested in adolescent nutrition, obesity, maternal nutrition, cytokines, gut microbiome and metabolic syndrome. I have experienced in micronutrient deficiencies, insulin resistance, serum enzyme diagnosis, metabolism of macronutrients, bioactive components, cellular biology, and immunology. In the field of clinical biochemistry, I have demonstrated the quality controls and precise estimation of biochemical parameters with ROC models.  Research on exercise and calorie are my passion.
