Research Experience / Expertise

Started research work in 2008 as Scientist at Phytochemistry division of Centre for Medicinal Plants Research. The important thrust areas of research are standardization of medicinal plants using various analytical tools, developing reference standards for genuine Ayurvedic raw drugs, Isolation and characterization of active molecules from medicinal plants, phytochemical variability studies of different accessions of medicinal plants for the selection of high yielding variety, optimization of methods for the sustainable utilization of medicinal plants etc. Expertise in handling sophisticated analytical instruments such as HPLC, HPTLC, GC, FTIR,     GC/ MS and LC/MS. Developed many analytical methods for the isolation and identification of important class of phytochemicals. More than 30 research articles with high impact factors in various national and international journals published by world renowned publishers like Elsevier, Taylor & Francis, Springer, Hindawi etc. He has guided 30 post-graduate students from various Universities for their project work. He is a member of Board of Studies in Biochemistry, Karpagam University, Coimbatore and a reviewer for many international journals such as Analytical Letters, Journal of Medicinal Plants Research, Natural Product Research etc.
