Research interests
My research interests include metabolomics, proteomics, and assay development. Recently, I am working on the development of colorimetric assays (enzymatic assays) for colorectal cancer metabolites in urine and their detection through biosensors. During my Ph.D., I worked on the biochemical and molecular characterization of microbial metabolites of agricultural interests through mass spectrometry, genomics, and colorimetry. I also carried out a project on the quantification of pyrogenic black carbon in the forest soils of oil sands through HPLC, by using BPCA biomarkers.
