About Me
Thank you very much for visiting my website.
I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of
Mathematics and Physics
at North South University.  I am
also working as  an Additional Director at the Institutional  Quality
Assurance
Cell (IQAC), a World Bank funded project,  at North South
Universty since January 2016.
I  joined  North   South   University (NSU)  as an assistant professor
in 2012.  Prior to my joining at NSU,  I worked as a postdoctoral
research fellow  at the  Max-Planck Institute (MPI)  for  Dynamics of
Complex Technical Systems,   Magdeburg, Germany, from 2011
to July 2012.  I received my PhD from  Chemnitz University of
Technology,  Germany in 2011.
