I worked in close association with Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Kolkata ( and European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), Geneva, Switzerland ( on the Muon Spectrometer of ALICE detector during my Ph. D. I was awarded Ph. D. degree on the work relating to the ALICE detector, entitled "Performance Study of Station 2 of Dimuon Spectrometer of ALICE detector". 

I have been actively engaged in the research activities in both Experimental and Theoretical High Energy Physics. 

I am member of two International Collaborations: ALICE at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland and CBM at GSI, Darmstadt, Germany. Both projects (ALICE and CBM) are sanctioned to the Department of Physics, AMU by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. 
I am Co-Principal Investigator of the ALICE project.

The operation and maintenance of the Cathode Pad Chambers of Second Tracking Station of Muon Spectrometer of ALICE detector is one of the major responsibilities in ALICE Collaboration. Additionally, the data taken by the ALICE detector at the Large hadron Collider energies are being analysed and the Physics issues related to quarkonia production/suppression are being investigated.

I am engaged in the simulation study of the physics performance of Muon Detectors of the Compressed Baryonic Matter Experiment ( planned at the FAIR accelerator at GSI, Germany. The fabrication, testing installation and commissioning of the Muon Detectors of CBM is one of the major responsibilities.

Apart from my engagements in the Experimental High Energy Physics, I have been working in the area of Theoretical High Energy Physics in collaboration with Professor Jean Cleymans, University of Cape Town, South Africa on the development of the Tsallis thermodynamics and implementation of the power law distribution, introduced by Constantino Tsallis, on LHC and other experimental data taken in heavy-ion collisions. 

With such research activities I have more that 300 research papers published in journals of International repute including Nature Physics, PRL and others into my credit ( I regularly attend the Conferences/Workshops/Symposia of International and National level and presented 31 papers including oral talks and posters.
