Biographic Sketch:
After completing my Ph.D. in Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic research, Kalpakkam, India pursued my Post doctoral research work in the University of Reading, UK and the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai, India. Joined as a regular faculty in department of Physics, CUTN as the Assistant Professor in the year January 2012. Continuing the profession currently with three Ph.D. scholars and two master project students. One Ph.D., one M.Phil. and more than twenty master project students completed their research thesis under my guidance. My focus is to train the graduate students to build their individual abilities in the course content. All my master project students are placed in well esteemed institutions in Europe, UK and USA. Two of the Integrated MSc. Students' works published in Indian Association of Physics Teachers (IAPT) journal: Physics Education. The central focus of my research work is to apply the concept of statistical mechanics in the theoretical, computational and experimental study of different kinds of condensed and soft condensed matter systems, heat devices, quantum thermodynamics systems and the application of Artificial Intelligence based Deep learning to understand further the above systems.

Research Highlights :

The central  focus of my  research work  is  to apply  the  concept of  statistical mechanics  in the theoretical, computational and experimental study of  different kinds of systems such as  polymers,  molecular motors,  polymer melts,  heat engines, low dimensional magnetic systems,  Black holes, etc.  Recently, I also focused on two emerging fields of quantum thermodynamics and Deep learning. Two of my research students recently submitted their Ph.D. thesis in the area of quantum thermodynamics and Monte Carlo simulation of low dimensional magnetic systems. Three master project students completed their project work in the field of Deep Learning.
