Research Interests

My recent interest has been in CFT and in the AdS/CFT. In particular, I have been looking at some aspects of the bulk reconstruction problem in AdS/CFT and also some topics in BCFT, in this context as well separately. I have been also involved in studying monopole operators in some supersymmetric theories in 2+1 dimensions.
