I am a theoretical physicist with interests in complex many-body phenomena and their potential applications. Many-body physical systems, such as electronic materials, cold atomic gases and biological systems, are made out of a large number of interacting particles or units. Strong interaction between these particles gives rise various collective emergent phenomena that are relevant for wide range of applications. I am interested in studying these strongly correlated and collective emergent phenomena in these many-body systems.
I have a strong commitment to my teaching. I always go beyond conventional teaching by employing interactive engagement strategies in all my classes. I use cooperative learning methods and integrated technology. I have taught all levels of physics classes from introductory to graduate level.
