Dr. Koushik Adhikari

Dr. Adhikari's research focuses mainly on sensory analysis (descriptive analysis and consumer acceptability) of commodity (mainly beef) and consumer food products. A current research foci include determining emotional response of consumers when consuming food and beverages, determining the relevance of sensory analysis and consumer behavior in food choice and nutrition in combating obesity in adolescents, and using multivariate statistical analyses to study relationships between descriptive data and consumer acceptability data and/or chemical flavor data (GC-MS).…Read More

Dr. Manjeet Chinnan

Description of Research Interests
  • Research is aimed at identifying suitable materials for the development of new or alternative packaging approaches for employing the concept of 'Active Packaging'.
  • The influence of frying process conditions and breading formulations or coatings on the changes affecting a product's quality (coating adhesion, coating pickup, oil uptake, surface color, texture) are being studied.Bacterial stress response
  • Strategies are being developed and examined for improving the frying life of oil and improving the quality of fried products.
