|APPLICATION OF NANOWIRE SENSOR DEVICE (ELECTRONIC NOSE) IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER TECHNIQUES FOR THE DETECTION OF FOOD QUALITY CONTROL, SAFETY AND BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS
My PhD research activities mainly deal with the artificial olfactory system or the electronic nose (nanowire gas sensor device) and its application in the assessment of food quality control and safety, detection of microbial food spoilage and contamination and environmental monitoring in combination with GC-MS-SPME, HPLC and spectroscopy techniques. Recently, I completed a research work aimed at predicting the quality evaluation and VOCs profile of the Italian Parmigiano Reggiano cheese by using an improved nanowire based electronic nose device S3 and dynamic headspace GC-MS.
I was born in 1988 in Far West Nepal. I am currently a PhD student at the SENSOR Laboratory, CNR-INO and University of Brescia, Department of Information Engineering under the Erasmus Mundus LEADER project, starting from November 2015. I received my Master’s (MSc) degree in Biotechnology in 2013 from South Asian University (SAARC University), New Delhi, India with a thesis entitled ‘’The Role of PIN1 in Prostate and Breast Cancer Cell Proliferation’’. I obtained my Bachelor’s (BSc) degree in Microbiology in 2010 from Tribhuvan University, Nepal. My research interests include biosensors, nanobiosensors for cancer diagnosis and detection, drug discovery and analysis, machine olfaction for environmental monitoring.
