Research interests

My research lies in the field of statistical physics and, in particular, the area of liquid state theory. Current interests include: i) fluid interfacial phenomena, especially the physics of adsorption, with emphasis on fluid phase transitions and criticality at surfaces,and the nature of correlation functions. ii) fluids under nano and mesoscale confinement. iii) theory of nucleation. iv) deriving and applying simple models of colloidal suspensions. I am also interested in the formal links between classical and quantum density functional theory(DFT), a technique that forms a cornerstone of many body physics.
