Research Interests

Research Interest

Shyam is interested in nutrition, metabolomics and gut microbiota-related research. His research expertise draws on developing analytical protocols for targeted and untargeted metabolomics research. Shyam is focused on evaluating potential beneficial effects of dietary fiber in modulating gut microbiota and its metabolites using a human clinical trial. This study could potentially provide crucial information in identifying markers or pathways which could help in reducing energy intake and modifying body fat composition in obese adults. His long term research objective focuses on discovering novel ways of preventing or treating several metabolic diseases through nutritional intervention studies.
