                                                                         Dear Propspective Research Collaborators,

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 (but not strictly) that i pursue is 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 models by studying the underlying PHYSICS ". Following steps might make your life easy :  

Step 1: Propose New or aim for an Existing Theoritical topic; Step 2: Build set of Tools (hardware/software); Step 3: Test the Theory & Tools; Step 4: Improve the Theory and Tools.


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

1. Programming Interface: C/C++/FORTRAN/Python/SQL/ALP and PLC programming,

2. Software interface: MATLAB or OCTAVE, Mathematica, LabVIEW, Ansys Fluent, AutoCAD/Solidworks or COMSOL,

3. Hardware Interface: Arduino/Pi or other advanced Controllers.

& Hardwares: Non-ionization and Ionization radiation Detectors /  Sensors / Transducers.


                                                                       Discussion are most welcome.
