Research interest:

  • Phytochemistry (for bioactive compounds)
  • Environmental chemistry (determine the rate, type, amount and level of pollutants accumulation by local plants)
  • Mycochemistry (find the useful chemicals made by fungi which fight against bacteria especially pathogenic bacterias)
  • Seed and fruit oil chemistry (determine the level and amount of both the useful and toxic chemicals making up the oil). The chemical evaluation of Pandanus conoideus fruit oil is ongoing. The first research report of the chemical composition of three species of Pandanus conoideus fruit oils from PNG is now being edited before releasing for public viewing.
