### About

I am a cotutelle doctoral candidate in the CQT group of "**Institute for Theoretical Physics, Leipzig University**" in Germany and "**Applied Mathematics Research Centre, Coventry University**", UK.

I am interested in the investigation of phase transitions and critical phenomena in statistical physics. My project is based on the study of spin glass phase transition. Spin glass research provides mathematical tools to analyze some interesting (and very hard) real-world problems. One of such problem is to test the speed of quantum anealing machines(quantum computers). In a 2D spin glass the phase transition takes place at zero temperature. Recently some works with group renormalisation theory shows that this critical point is frustration dependent. I am dealing with this question in my Research.

I am also studying dynamics of unzipping of the periodically driven DNA.
