About Myself
Though i studied gravitation for my Doctoral dissertation, my current interest is in the field of complexity theory. My essential research focus is on understanding complexity in natural as well as anthropogenic systems using mathematical models. I would like to explore possibilities of adopting a game theoretic coupled with a graph theoretic perspective to develop insights into the fundamental dynamical processes that evolve these systems.
A quintessential learner, any domain that offers me with an opportunity to learn about complexity usually captures my interest. I am particularly fond of photography, painting and travelling, and all three respond generously to my constant strive for learning.
