I am an affiliated research associate with the CSPAR (Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research), University of Alabama in Huntsville. My research interest and background include:


  • Systems Biology and Bioinformatics (presently as part of a graduate program at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio): Genomics, Proteomics, Computational molecular biology, Translational biology.

  • Numerical Algorithms and Methods: Finite difference / Finite Volume / Finite element / Eulerian – Lagrangian methods / Riemann solver / Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Particle based methods: Monte-Carlo / Particle-in-Cell / Test-particle; Density function methods: Boltzmann

  • Solvers: Initial & Boundary value problem / ODE-PDE in presence of steep slope or singularity / Eigenvalue problem.

  • Computational Physics: Turbulence / Magnetic reconnection / Thermal conduction / Instabilities / Wave-particles interaction / Atomic physics / laser-plasma interaction.

  • Medical Physics: Statistical Data Analysis / EEG-MEG / Monte-Carlo simulations of radiation transport.
