I am a Graduate Student in University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. I am pursuing my Ph.D in Condensed matter physics under the supervision of Prof. Elbio Dagotto.
Predominantly I study the electronic and magnetic properties of strongly correlated electrons in multi-orbital Hubbard models using exact numerical techniques like Density Matrix Renormalization Group (DMRG) theory and Lanczos Algorithm. These kind of exact studies are significant for materials where orbital degree of freedom plays an important role like in transition metal oxides (for example pnictides, iridates, rhutenates etc.). Specifically, currently I am interested in newly emerging field of 4d and 5d materials where Spin orbit coupling is large and hence should be taken into account in theoretical investigations.
For details of my work, please look into my publications.
