Research work

I have been working of problems emerging from neuroscience and address these in the framework & language of nonlinear dynamics. Within this framework, network of neurons belong to the category of network of non-linear oscillators , or a network of excitable units. At the same time I am also interested to explore systems of such oscillators in general. These are known to give rise to vast variety of coherent states  - synchronization, partial synchronization, Chimera states.

 
Currently I am interested in questions connected to the following
  1.  Firing Coherence in networks of integrate fire neurons
  2. Chimera states in Metronomes
  3. Phenomena of rythmic clapping
  4. Some aspects of finite networks of Kuramoto oscillators
  5. Randomenss in sensorimotor neural pathway using EEG.
 
Sometime back I had explored Dynamics of Biological neurons. Response of the nervous systems to a stimuli depends on the properties of the stimulus. In our work, we are investigating the dynamics of a single Hodgkin-Huxley neuron to periodic stimuli. 
 
 
In the past I have also published work in Magnetohydrodynamic Turbulence. I have investigated the transfer of energy between fluid and the magnetic energy in 2-dimensions. The formalism developed in the work provides an aid to locate the scales at which magnetic field gets generated in a dynamo.
