The research mainly focuses on:

  • Production, purification, characterization, and optimization of industrially and medically important exopolysaccharides by extremophiles
  • Chemical modifications of exopolysaccharides and their characterization
  • Levan-based bioactive films and surfaces
  • Formation of nanostructured thin films by Matrix Assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation (MAPLE) and gradient organic thin films by Combinatorial Matrix-Assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation (C-MAPLE)
  • Anti-cancer, immunostimulating, and anticoagulation activities of exopolysaccharides
  • Biocompatibility studies of biomaterials and biofilms
  • Investigate new materials synthesis, formulation to designate their therapeutic efficacy.
