Research Interests 

My research interest is in beam dynamics, accelerator physics, nonlinear dynamics, and computational physics. Currently our research is aimed at bringing new methods of nonlinear analysis for an understanding of the nonlinear motion of beam particles in particle accelerators. Our research has been continuously supported by the US Department of Energy. We are also collaborating with many beam-dynamics groups in national and international accelerator laboratories such as Fermilab, BNL, LBL, JLab, CERN, and DESY.
