Research interests

     
Fellowship title: Entropy and Particle Creation in Bouncing Cosmologies 
o   Can alternative theories of gravity be constrained through the study of  quantum phenomena? 
o   Does a non-singular bouncing cosmology with apparent horizon lead to particle creation? 
o   What are the implications for the foundations of thermodynamics in (bouncing) cosmologies? ·        

Modified Theories of Gravity 
o   Extended theories of Relativity, Infinite Derivative Gravity, Symmetric Teleparallel Gravity 
o   Geodesic Completeness and the Cosmological singularity problem 
o   Entropy and thermodynamics of a bouncing Universe ·       

Analogue Hawking Radiation in Laser Plasma Physics 
o   Time evolution of system encoding quantum fluctuations of the matter and laser fields 
o   Constructing effective metrics & analysing vacuum persistence (QFT) on a curved spacetime 
o     Dilaton gravity, Heat Kernel expansion, -function regularization, Schwinger proper time, etc
