Personal profile


Sushil completed his PhD at The University of Queensland in 2011 elucidating the structure-property relations of starch granules.  This was followed by a research fellow position at UQ, examining the starch-plant cell walls interactions.  Sushil joined Monash University (Department of  Chemical Engineering)  in July 2019. 

Sushil currently serves as Editor for the journal Carbohydrate Polymers and in the Editorial Board of journals Food Hydrocolloids  and  Food Chemistry

Sushil caries fundamental and applied research on elucidating the structure-property-function-health relationships of food and food ingredients. His stronghold and research interest are on relating the plant molecular structures to macroscopic properties with relevance to food,  health, and product development. He uses cross-disciplinary approaches drawing from physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering and uses various in-vitro and in-vivo models to elucidate the fundamental mechanisms beyond the nutritional and processing functionality of food and food ingredients.
