My research interests focus on understanding the origin of the highest energy cosmic rays. Cosmic rays with energies in excess of 1020eV have been observed striking Earth's atmosphere; these particles are the most energetic known in our universe, with more than 100 million times the energy produced at the largest particle . . .

The main research interest of the Environmental Optics Laboratory is the study of the effects that anthropogenic and natural particulates suspended and transported in the atmosphere (aerosols) have on Earth's climate and air quality. The net effect on climate from greenhouse gases, aerosols, and clouds is a complex integral that is not . . .

My current research primarily focuses on addressing some of the fundamental challenges associated with nanoscience. Specifically, this research tries to answer some of the open questions pertaining to the electron (both charge and spin) transfer process involving nanoscale junction in a non-equilibrium condition using quantum many body theory.
