My research interest is in the areas of Endocrinology and metabolism. I am particularly interested in the role of extra-hepatic tissues in glucose homeostasis and metabolism. I have worked extensively on the contributions of gastro-intestinal tract and skeletal muscle in glucose homeostasis. Recently, I have also been looking at the effects of chronic and acute intake of caffeine and some caffeine containing foods in glucose and lipid homeostasis. I am also interested in comparative physiology and I have looked at carbohydrate metabolism in different animal groups including toads, rats, mice and dogs.
