Research interests:

Natural Product chemistry (phytochemistry) particularly those derived from medicinal plants, marine organisms and fungal sources. Organic synthesis of complex biologically active natural products, the development of new and total synthesis of natural products, and development of new synthetic methodology for herbal drug standardization and quality control, bioactive natural product synthesis, nanochemistry, medicinal chemistry, green organic chemistry

Ongoing research:

  1. Potential role of essential oils from Neem (Azadirachtaindica) on controlling Ensete pathogens from Selected Areas of Guraghe Zone, Ethiopia

In the present investigation antimicrobial activity of neem (Azadirachtaindica) plant essential oils have been evaluated .After bioassays, most of the essential oils were found susceptible to both bacteria Xanthomonascampestrispv. musacearum (Xcm) and fungi pathogens of enset plant i.eFusariumoxysporum. Present study reveals significantly higher broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity in essential oils than antibiotics i.e.,tetracycline.
