Areas of Interest & Expertise
- Celestial Mechanics
- Quantum Mechanics
- Cold Atoms
He holds an integrated PhD in Physics from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru, where he worked in the field of cold atoms studying the effects of artificial gauge fields on interacting Fermi systems. This led to many interesting results including the discovery of Rashbons. Of late, his interests are in Celestial Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics. Recently, he developed efficient algorithms to discover new celestial objects based on the data of known objects.
He was selected as an Associate of the Indian Academy of Sciences in 2018.
He is also interested in Sanskrit literature and holds a MA degree in Sanskrit from Karnataka State Open University (KSOU), Mysuru.
He has also contributed to translating study material for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students, under the translations initiative of Azim Premji University.
