Research Interests

My primary research interest lies in the area of food engineering. Within food engineering, thermal/aseptic processing of particulate foods using conventional heat exchangers and microwaves is my major area of research. This includes various aspects of fluid mechanics and heat transfer. I also deal with mathematical modeling of velocity and temperature profiles during thermal processing. Developing sensors to monitor various aspects of the process is another area that I deal with. All these efforts are geared towards assuring commercial sterility of a product by microbiological validation. Identifying the optimum processing conditions that yields a safe and high quality product is another aspect of food processing that comes under the realms of my research interests.
