Work in Progress and Current Research 

Many Physical systems show an abrupt change in their properties when some external parameters are modified, it is called phase transition. Recently, this phenomena has been one of the most exciting areas in computer science and artificial intelligence.  My  research  interest is to understand  the impact of this  phenomena  in machine learning  area.
