My name is Maya.
I received my post-graduation (1996-1999) and Ph.D (2000-2005) degree from School of Industrial Fisheries, Cochin University of Science and Technology. After finishing my post-graduation, I worked as Technologist (1999-2000) for one year at Koluthara exports limited and was responsible for the quality assurance of the raw and finished processed products. I was also responsible for personnel management at the company.
My Ph.D thesis entitled “Effects of thermal modifications on the rheological characteristics and protein quality of three species of fish of varying collagen content”. This study investigated the role of structural proteins namely, myofibrillar protein and collagen on textural characteristics during thermal modifications such as, freezing and cooking.
After submitting my thesis, I joined as faculty (2005-2009) of food science and technology at MACFAST and taught various subjects to post-graduate students. I received funding from KSCSTE for the project titled “Fish collagen extraction from underutilized fishery resources of Kerala”.
Later, I joined Nitta Gelatin India Limited, as research officer (2009-2009) and worked on the project “Extraction of collagen peptide and gelatin peptide from fish scale”. Soon afterwards,
I received scholarship from Erasmus Mundus Windows Lot 15 for postdoctoral study (2009-2010) at Applied Nutrition and Food Chemistry, Lund University, Sweden. During this period, I worked on the binding of dietary fibers to process-induced food mutagens.
After finishing the scholarship, I joined Dept. of Biotechnology, Indian Institute of Technology Madras as Women Scientist (2012-2015) with the project funded by Dept. of Science and Technology, Women Scientist Scheme (WOS-A). The project was titled “Potentialities of marine dietary fibers in binding carcinogens”. The study investigated the binding of marine dietary fibers from red algae to food mutagens and other environmental carcinogens. It also investigated the binding efficacy in invitro conditions by simulating the gut model. Thus, the role of enzymes and gut pH on the binding was studied. The binding study were further explained using molecular modelling and molecular dynamics. Anticancer effects of these low molecular weight water soluble polysaccharides were investigated in various cell lines and in animal model.
I continued there as Project Assistant (2015-2016) and worked on hydrogels for wound healing. Hydrogel was developed using natural biopolymers and was successful in encapsulating hydrophobic drugs. I also worked on developing antimicrobial biodegradable food packaging material.
I have few peer-reviewed publications to my credit. I have also filed a patent. I have also published book and few book-chapters.
