Profile

Hi all. Welcome to my website!

I have just learnt how to create a website, so you have to bear with me. Mostly, everything will still be empty (as I just join USM in January 2011 too). But I will update this website as soon as possible.

Enjoy!

 

Research

For my research, I'm really interested in combining food biopolymer with developing food products with added value (functional food). As we all know, nowadays people really concern about their health. So I hope from my research output, I could contribute to the human nutrition and community health.

Basically, my research interest is around these area

  • Food polymer science in the study of food biopolymer
  • Fundamental aspects of structure-property relationships and technological applications of starch and non-starch polysaccharides
  • Developing food products with added value (functional food)
  • Food processing of agro-based products and waste utilization
  • Food chemistry and analysis

p/s: Never judge the book by its cover cause you never know what you love till you know them. So to those who think that they don't like starch, you are most welcome to come and see me personally. Cool
