Ever since I started my learning course in physics, I have been fascinated by physical phenomena in the field of condensed matter physics. I am particularly interested in studying the effects that are of great importance in the practical life. During my college study, I realized that it is inherent to inspect carefully and understand the principles behind every natural phenomenon so that the knowledge gained after learning can be executed properly in the real world. By nature, principles in the realm of physics are abstract and need certain kind of mathematical skills to understand them clearly. I developed a self-made interest in the field of physics as I used to wonder what works behind the every natural occurrence in the world/universe around us. Later during my Masters, I wrote a thesis that dealt with the electronic properties of the solid hydrogen system. It enhanced my overarching perspective in the research that eventually led me to continue my study as a Ph.D. scholar in condensed matter theory at the University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL.
My PhD work describes primarily the excitation of the electron-hole pair in condensed matter physics, with several applications for future electronics as well as low-power spintronics devices, quantum memory and quantum information processing. Most of my works in PhD were completed within analytical calculations, and first principle electronic and optical property simulations of semiconducting materials, topological insulators (alloys and compounds) and other 2D layered materials. We utilized heavily the computational resources ‘STOKES’ at UCF high computing facility located at UCF main campus for our simulations. We used VASP, Quantumwise (ATK) and Quantum Espresso installed on STOKES to model our projects. Results were used to predict, as an example, for switching phenomenon (see Nano Lett. 12, 2690-2696 (2012)), quantum computing (see Phys. Rev. B 88, 085316 (2013)), quantum memory, solar cell design, nanotransistor (see Nanoscale, 6 10033 (2014)) and water splitting event. In September, 2014 I joined Prof. Mark I Stockman’s group at the Center for Nano-Optics, Georgia State University where I still work as a postdoc in the field of nano-optics and nanoelectronics (see Phys Rev. B 93, 155105 (2016)).
I am keenly interested in understanding of phenomenon induced due to light-matter interactions in the materials. Specifically, my fields of interest are study of optoelectronic property of materials, quantum optical phenomenon, special light propagation in the materials effect of photon polarization. Materials of interest are 2D layered materials, semiconductors, 3D topological insulators, layered materials and noble metals. The majority of my publications are in nanoscale physics and feature distinct bottom-up theoretical predictions with ventures for excellent practical applications.
