I have been researching the efficacy of essential oils and methylglyoxal as antibacterial agents against multidrug-resistant bacteria for fifteen years. Presently, I am focusing my research on the development of topical emollients of essential oils and methylglyoxal in carrier oils to combat multidrug-resistant bacteria to be used in health-care settings.

Research Interests:

1. Study of Antimicrobial Properties of Combination of Essential Oils and Methylglyoxal

2.Development of Topical Emollients Containing the Active Essential Oils and Methylglyoxal to Combat Multidrug-Resistant Bacteria in Health-Care Settings.
