Research Interests

I am a computational Physicist with expertise in studying long-standing phenomenon like magnetism, in various complicated (strongly) correlated systems.  Currently, I am very much interested to develop a systematic high-throughput approach to the rapid design of novel energy materials for applications in solar cells and thermal management.
