Research Overview:

Our research efforts have two aspects. One the development of novel methodologies and their application of challenging new materials and phenomena. Our research spans the areas of many body physics, statistical mechanics, computational physics and materials science.
As of 2011 I had 51 publications with more than 51 citations ( h index 51). We describe a few of them briefly below to give a flavor of the research going on in our group.

One mainstay of my research program has been the development of methods for treating strongly correlated electron systems. We favor a combination of simpler approaches such as the slave boson methodology in conjunction with more accurate methods such as the Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMFT) methodology for the treatment of model Hamiltonians.
