My research focuses on developing food- and bio-processing technologies to produce food ingredients, animal feed, and green chemicals from agricultural and food products for improving the sustainability of the food production chain. Our group is specifically interested in exploring novel solutions (e.g., fermentation, extraction, fractionation, etc.) to convert food waste/byproducts to value-added products.

Current projects include 1) fractionation and purification of high-value components (proteins, lipids, antioxidants, etc.) from food processing byproducts; 2) conversion of various types of food wastes to value-added chemicals using novel fermentation techniques; 3) quantification and characterization of major components in food.
