Research Interests

My general research interests are in theoretical and computational Kinetic Theories and Statistical Mechanics. I also have a special interest on Pattern Formation, Non-equilibrium and the Complexity Science.
I have been using theoretical modeling as well as computational tools, like Molecular dynamics and Phase-Field method, to study and model different aspects of non-equilibrium phenomenon in Condensed matter regime.
To date my work in the lab has been focused on using molecular simulations to model transport coefficients in plasmas and Warm Dense Matter.
