My research interests include characterization of major components of food like proteins, starch, dietary fibre mainly β-glucan, encapsulation and targeted delivery of bioactive compounds like probiotics and phenolics through gastro-intestinal tract, development and characterization of active packaging films, fortification of bakery foods with protein concentrates, development of functional foods with anticancerous and antioxidant activity, nutraceutical potential of bioactive peptides. From the last six years, I have published more than 100 research and review articles in high impact journals of international reputation like Food Chemistry, Food Hydrocolloids, Carbohydrate polymers, Innovative Food Science and Technology, Royal society of Chemistry, etc. I have published almost 30 research papers in 2017 only with an average impact factor of 3-4. I have also the privilege of establishing Food Technology labs at Govt. polytechnic for women, Srinagar funded by the World Bank and a founding member for establishment of Dept. of Food science and Technology at University of Kashmir. I have established a cell culture lab equipped with hi-tech equipments like ELISA, ATR-FTIR, DSC, Gel doc, etc, through DBT funding. I have been invited as a speaker in 6th International conference on Food Factors (ICOFF2015) held in South Korea and attended many international conferences on Food. I have been Awarded with Fulbright Post Doc fellowship for research and Academic Excellence in USA, 2017-2018 and my host institute for fellowship is cornell university USA. I have also been Awarded as Young Scientist Award (Innovations in Research Carrer) at ICFP-2018 in UAE.
