Research

Computational studies in statistical and condensed matter physics, where Ph.D. dissertation focused on extensive numerical studies of the non-equilibrium relaxation properties of magnetic flux lines in type-II superconductors and the Coulomb glass model in disordered semiconductors through Langevin molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations. Research interest in the simulation and analysis of complex systems in economic and social physics, and systems of ecological and biological significance.
