Research Overview

My research, done with students, postdoctoral associates, and colleagues at TIFR and elsewhere, has focused on cooperative effects in interacting systems, both in and out of equilibrium. At TCIS, I have been working primarily on nonequilibrium statistical physics, often involving new phases that arise from external driving and interactions between particles. Specifically, I have been investigating fluctuation-dominated phase ordering, entropy-induced ordering of hard objects, and disordered-driven systems. I also look at multispecies coupled driven systems, at instabilities that lead to phase separation, and aggregation-fragmentation dynamics, with connections to intra-cellular transport of proteins.
