I am a teaching and research faculty at K-State with responsibilities in the biomaterial and bioprocessing area. I have been conducted research in quality measurement of biological materials using Near-Infrared Spectroscopy, grain processing including drying, dry and wet-milling of grains, bioconversion and biomaterials. More recently, my research focuses on bioconversion of agricultural materials and by-products into biofuels, chemicals and other value-added products, and development of biodegradable materials from renewable recourse. I teach courses in food engineering, fundamentals of agricultural engineering, bioprocessing and biomaterials.
