Dr. Regina Sharmila Dass

Assistant Professor

Department of Microbiology

Research Area

I am a pure Microbiologist with over fifteen years of experience in teaching and research with Food Microbiology, Molecular/ Fungal Genetics and Mycotoxicology. I have worked in the area of mycotoxins namely Fumonisins in cereals and cereal-based feedstuffs from India. I also specialise in the identification of a wide variety of fungi with special emphasis to Fusarium and Aspergillus species, being among the first groups in India who have studied and documented different Fusarium species. Further, my interests are on Myco-nanotechnology and collaborations with other scientists to study concepts related to Martian fungi.
