My research work is in the field of Experimental High Energy Physics (HEP) and focus on the characterization of a novel state of QCD matter with partonic degrees of freedom known as Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) formed in relativistic heavy ion collisions. My research activities include: (a) Detector development & instrumentation for the HEP experiments (b) Active participation in two most important experimental collaborations in this field, A Large Ion Collider Experiment (ALICE) at Large Hadron Collider (LHC), CERN, Geneva and Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment at future Facility for Anti-proton and Ion Research (FAIR) at GSI, Germany (c) Data analysis and interpretation (d) Simulations and software development and (e) Model based studies.
