SwarnaJayanti Fellow (2022-2026)

I am primarily interested in Special Functions, Analytic number theory, q-series and the Theory of Partitions. I like to work in the areas of Mathematics developed by Srinivasa Ramanujan. Here is my Curriculum Vitae.

- Postdoctoral Fellow in Mathematics

Tulane University, August 2012- July 2015. - PhD in Mathematics

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 2006-2012. - MS in Mathematics

Texas Tech University, 2004-2006. - BE in Computer Engineering

University of Mumbai, 2000-2004.

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.
