       "Life can be magnificent and overwhelming. That is it's whole tragedy.
                  Without beauty love or danger it would be almost easy to live"

Academic Interests

My main interests fall in the areas related to digital communications and coding theory. More specifically, the topics that interest me a lot are digital communication theory, information theory, error correcting codes , signal processing , combinatorics, complexity theory etc. But above all these I have a deep love for mathematics. For culture sake, I also maintain an interest in certain topics not directly related to my work (though the busy  life has made this a bit more difficult these days): Commutative Algebra, Algebraic Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry are some examples;  Off late I have also (Re) developed an interest in Physics (especially GR &Cosmology). Very recently(after listening to David Forney's talk on "Codes and systems on Graphs" at the IEEE Information theory workshop) I am quite interetsted in Graph theory as well.
