Currently, I am working as a postdoctoral researcher at National Institute of Animal Science, Chenon, Korea. I received my Doctorate degree in Biochemistry from Bharathiar University, Tamil Nadu, India in August 2013. My Post-Doc research focusing on two areas, I- Analyze the role of plant phyto components in lipid storage of 3T3-L1 preadipocytes cell lines and find the mechanism of action in molecular level. II- Isolation of lactic acid producing bacterial strains from natural sources, characterizes its probiotic properties, evaluates its potential as starters for animal feed development and study the role of bacterial Cell Free Supernatants (CFS) on lipid differentiation of 3T3-L1 preadipocytes.
