Esther's research focuses on identifying the potential anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of polyphenols derived from Australian-grown coloured rice in obestiy and obesity-related diseases.

The purpose of this research is to identify the wholegrain coloured rice varieties that have the best health benefits associated with them to assist the Australian rice breeding program to develop potential polyhenol-enriched rice varieties that may provide therapeutic effects when consumed as part of a healthy diet.

Supervisors: Dr Abishek Santhakumar and Professor Chris Blanchard
