Research Interest

  • Soft condensed matter physics
  • Cosmology

My research interests can be broadly categorized into two areas. Firstly, I use statistical mechanics
and computer simulations to gain insights into soft matter systems. Secondly, I aim to understand the
origin and evolution of perturbations in early universe scenarios.
