Associate Professor Puri is an established leader in the area of Industrial biotechnology. He obtained his PhD in India, and did his postdoctoral research at University of Oxford, UK. The major area of his research includes “microbial bioprocessing” where emphasis is laid upon developing technologies to produce and purify novel molecules such as proteins/ enzymes/ bioactives from variety of unexplored habitats such as marine, and waste agriculture resources. He has contributed towards research areas including: Bioprocessing for bioactive production, Nutraceutical extraction for human health and Nanobiotechnology approaches for bioenergy production. He has published 110 research papers (see SCOPUS, Researchgate, Google Scholar) in the leading International journals of the discipline "Biotechnology and Applied Microbiology". Over the years, he has supervised 20 students to PhD completion in the discipline of biotechnology. He is on the Editorial board of research journals such as Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology, Catalysts, ISRN Biotechnology, Marine Drugs and AIMS Energy.
