    My research interest is in the area of theoretical statistical mechanics of biopolymers. I am particularly interested in developing theoretical models for thermodynamics and kinetics of protein folding and protein aggregation to better understand origin of several neurodegenerative diseases and help in the formulation of protein therapeutics. My other interest is to model non equilibrium systems where fluctuations are important. This is particularly important to study dynamics in the field of nano and bio-science where small number fluctuations are important. The focus of our work is both to lay foundation for dynamical processes where fluctuations are significant, and more importanly, to apply the theory to the types of single molecule experiments that are beginning to appear routinely in biology.
