Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics

My interest lies primarily in understanding the fundamental features of out-of-equilibrium Physics. Accordingly, my work has diffused between various technical aspects, relating to the tools of study, e.g., renormalization groups, large deviation theory, mean-field analysis, Importance Sampling, etc and their applications in systems, such as fluid and tethered membranes, interface fluctuations, passive scalar turbulence, or microscopic modelling of 'active' matter. My current focus is on interacting active systems, where the internal and interaction time-scales conspire together to produce fascinating outcomes ranging from collective motion, dynamical phase transitions, suprathermal distribution functions to heavy-tailed auto-correlation functions.
