**Research**:

My current research work deals with the study of:

- high-temperature superconductors
- quantum magnetism,
- the microscopic origin of the friction phenomenon, and
- models of spatiotemporal dynamics in ecology

- the spin-Peierls materials, and
- the crossover scaling effects in the quasi-one-dimensional organic
conductors.
