Sastry’s research interests include physiological disorders and nutritional aspects concerning potato. His research employs both molecular and biochemical tools to study the pre and postharvest factors affecting the quality of the produce. He recently published articles concerning accumulation of selenium in potatoes, ways to reduce acrylamide formation in fried potato products and characterization of antidiabetic compounds such as biguanide related compounds in vegetables.
