Research Interest

I am a theoretical physicist with a diverse research portfolio encompassing quantum physics, quantum field theory, relativistic astrophysics, quantum gravity, and general relativity. My work centers on the investigation of ultra-dense matter, nuclear reactions, and the properties of compact celestial objects, including white dwarfs, neutron stars, and low-mass black holes. Additionally, my research has garnered recognition for its focus on exotic forms of matter, such as strange quark matter. Details about my academic activities can be found here.
