Designation:

Associate Professor

Research Area:

Number Theory

Education:

**Ph. D., 2008, Harish-Chandra Research Institute**

**M. Sc., 2001, Sambalpur University**

**B. Sc., 1999, Gangadhar Meher College**

Research Interest:

**Specialisation: Number Theory, Modular Forms **

**Present Research Interests:**

** Supercongruences: **The numbers which occur in Ap\'{e}ry's proof of the irrationality of zeta(2) and zeta(3) have many interesting congruence properties.Work started with F. Beukers and D. Zagier, then extended by G. Almkvist, W. Zudilin and S. Cooper recently has complemented the Ap\'{e}ry numbers with set of sequences know as Ap\'{e}ry-like numbers which share many of the remarkable properties of the Ap\'{e}ry numbers. We study supercongruences properties of Ap\'{e}ry-like numbers.

** Differential Operators: **There are many interesting connections between differential operates and modular forms. Using Rankin-Cohen type differential operators on Jacobi forms/ Siegel modular forms we study certain arithmetic of Fourier coefficients.
