Research Interests:

Generally my research interest is lipid biochemistry and functional lipid biosynthesis. Particularly I am interested in deciphering the key metabolic pathways and signalling pathway involved in lipid metabolism in oleaginous microorganisms. In addition I am also interested in deciphering the link between lipid metabolism and metabolic syndrome and tumorigenesis, and the mechanism of natural bioactive compounds against major metabolic diseases.
