I am open for Ideas: 

If you are a person (a non-robotic entity) having an idea to explore, and yearn to seriosuly pursue it, may be as a PhD problem or may be as a casual science project, Great !, or If you want to get aligned with mine.. Great !

Discussion are welcome.

I have categorized the field of research, i am currently involved in (look on top of this page). Mostly these topics belong to applied physics, are interdisiplinary in nature.

The Research Philosophy that i pursue is somewhat as follows:  

Developing instruments (Designing + Assembling + Digital Interfacing + Signal Processing and Post Processing) is the pathway that i prefer for "validating and improving existing mathematical models and proposing new ones by studying the underlying physics". Following steps might make your life easy:  

Step 1: Propose or aim for an existing Theoritical topic, Step 2: Build set of Tools (hardware/software), Step 3: Test the theory and tool, Step 4: Improve the theory and tool.

I am interested to learn from you and would be happy to make you learn following set (but not all) of tools:

1. Coding: C/C++/FORTRAN/Python/SQL/ALU and PLC programming, 

2. Handling Softwares: MATLAB, Mathematica, LabVIEW, Ansys Fluent, AutoCAD and COMSOL,

3. Arduino Controllers, NI Boards.
