Introduction

Spin transport in topological materials, spin-orbit torque, quantum rings, wavepacket dynamics​​

Research Interests

My research is focused on understanding the interplay between topological insulator and magnetic material and its impact on different spintronics phenomena like spin-orbit-torque. The study employs both analytic techniques as well as numerical methods using tight-binding model and density functional theory.
