Research Areas

I have research interests in theoretical nuclear/particle physics and mathematical physics. One of the specialized areas of my research is the formulation of 3-dimensional relativistic two-body equations and their applications to physical systems. Currently, my research group is involved in applying these formalisms in relativistic multiple scattering theories, nuclear reaction calculations and the phenomenology of quark anti-quark bound states.

I am also interested in the application of differential geometry in physics. One of the most beautiful applications of differential geometry in physics is the fiber bundle formalism of gauge theories. One of our aims is to understand how to relate gauge theories formulated on different manifolds and eventually understand such things as AdS/CFT correspondence..
