Current Projects

I have a broad and interdisciplinary range of research interests that include:

(a) Circadian biology, metabolism, and ageing

(b) Regulation, safety, and efficacy of functional foods and nutraceuticals

(c) Discerning the role of lipid mediators such as eicosanoids and platelet-activating factors in inflammatory diseases.

(d) The role of a patient's nutritional status and the use of supplements during COVID-19.

Stay tuned for research updates in these areas! 

Projects Ongoing

Circadian Regulation of Metabolism and Aging

2020 - Present: This project aims to understand the role of circadian misalignment and its contribution to metabolic diseases and aging, with a focus on Bmal1.

Lipid Mediators of Inflammation

2016 - Present: Platelet-activating factor (PAF), prostaglandins, and leukotrienes play a pivotal role in inflammatory signaling. We are interested in the development of novel therapeutic agents targeting these inflammatory mediators.

COVID-19 Research and Review Consortium

2020 - 2021: COVID-19 Review Consortium at UPenn. Our aim is to distill the existing COVID-19 literature into reviews that document the most reliable research to date in the areas of pathogenesis, therapeutics, prophylactics, and diagnostics.

2018 - 2021: Heart Healthy Salmon Nutraceuticals

The aim of this project was to assess the antioxidant properties and elucidate the structures of antithrombotic polar lipids from farmed Atlantic salmon using C30RP-UHPLC-HRAM-MS/MS for the development of novel nutraceuticals.
