Ram Saran Chaurasiya

Assistant Professor, Biotechnology


During his PhD he has worked on "Separation and purification of Bromelain from Pineapple wastes using nano-particulate reverse micelles" in CSIR-CFTRI, Mysuru. His major area of research is Biochemical Engineering in general and Downstream processing (DSP) & Waste management in particular. His expertise includes development and scale-up of the DSP processes for separation and purification of biomolecules having commercial applications, and its product development. Wealth from Agro-Food processing waste by recovery of bioactive molecules and value addition to spent waste is one of the prominent areas of current and future research around the world. His vision for the future research is to work in the similar area for the benefit/betterment of Livelihood especially that of our rural brethren. He has published 6 research papers and 1 review paper in International journals beside 1 book chapter. He has made several presentations (3 oral and 10 posters) in various International/National conferences including one oral presentation in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Apart from that, he has participated in several international conferences, workshops and technical seminars.
