STATISTICAL PHYSICS OF EQUILIBRIUM AND NONEQUILIBRIUM CONDENSED-MATTER SYSTEMS

My primary research involvement has been in the statistical mechanics of phase transitions and areas related to that. I am interested in investigation of condensed-matter systems both at and away from equilibrium, for which I use Monte Carlo, Molecular Dynamics and Field Theoretic Continuum Dynamical Models. In this broad field, following topics have been my focus in recent years:

 

  • Phase Transition and Critical Phenomena

  • Kinetics of Phase Separation in Multicomponent Mixtures

  • Structure and Dynamics in Confined Systems

  • Pattern Formation in Granular Material and Biological Systems

  • Structure and Dynamics in Supercooled Systems

  • Nucleation Phenomena

  • Wetting Phenomena

  • Aging in Nonequilibrium Systems

  • Active Matter
