Research Updates

I am currently intereseted primarily in field-theoretic treatment of different gravitational models, having conformal symmetry. Also, topological aspects of gauge theories, with possible anomaly structure is under study too. Further, symmetry structure of effective field theories, includding integrable models, are of interest.
