Research Interest:

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.*Supercongruences:*

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.*Differential Operators:*

We compute convolution sums of divisor function using the theory of modular forms and quasi modular forms and apply those to find number of representations of an integer by certain quadratic forms.*Convolution sums and applications:*

**Representations of numbers by quadartic forms:**
