I do research mostly in those areas, where I did not have any publication along with any of my past research guides. Therefore most of my research papers are not the extension or generalization of any such works, which is quite unusual now-a-days. Many research problems are taken from literature, many problems just came into our thoughts - some of them are solved by methods developed by others after suitable modifications but most are solved by methods developed by us. Our motivation is always to find the exact analytical solution of those equations, which are thought to be analytically intractable by experts in the field. Our research works are widely appreciated by real experts across the globe and salient features of experimental data were reproduced by using our model. In our research group, students are always the corresponding author of all papers - so that students gets training on all steps, starting from finding a research problem upto publications. In our group all students publish at least one single author paper during Ph.D. time. As a policy of our research group, we do not publish papers to journals by payment (APC). We have a very transparant research policy that all our data, source codes, detailed derivations are available on request*.
