I am interested in the field of soft condensed matter, particularly in the field theory and to simulate the problems of phase separation. I am also interested in understanding the dynamics of a non-equilibrium thermodynamic state leading to an equilibrium state. We use various analytical and computational tools of statistical mechanics such as dynamical density functional theory, phase-field theory Monte Carlo, and MD simulations. In particular, our group is interested in confined binary alloys and liquid crystals including the properties of their interfaces. Moreover, efforts would be made to formulate various approaches to develop models requiring the least computational budget.
