My area of expertise is in plant-based medicines and nutraceuticals, with specialization in natural products chemistry including bioactive compound isolation, structure determination (MS and NMR), analytical method development and validation (HPLC & LC/MS), bio-directed fractionation, standardization and quality control of botanicals, plant genetic resources and plant taxonomy. With specialization in polyphenols chemistry and bioanalysis for bioavailability studies, my research focuses on the application and chemistry of natural compounds to human nutrition and health, with a particular interest in public health and in the treatment/prevention of age-related diseases.
