His research thrust is in the area of preservation and processing of agricultural products to avoid post harvest losses.His main focus is coming up with simple, inexpensive food processing technologies that can easily and cheaply be accessed as well as coming with simple traditional storage structures for agricultural products. With regard to processing, the main topic of interest is the impact of the interaction between product properties and processing conditions on food quality, safety and functionality.
