Research Interests

Analytic Number Theory, Special Functions, Theory of Partitions, q-series and Modular Forms fascinate me. Over the years, my research has been diversified as a result of working on problems on reciprocal and self-reciprocal functions, zeros of certain L-functions in Analytic Number Theory and identities in basic hypergeometric series with applications to the Theory of Partitions.
