Research Interest
 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}rylike numbers which share many of the remarkable properties of the Ap\'{e}ry numbers. We study supercongruences properties of Ap\'{e}rylike numbers.
 Differential Operators: There are many interesting connections between differential operates and modular forms. Using RankinCohen type differential operators on Jacobi forms/ Siegel modular forms we study certain arithmetic of Fourier coefficients.
 Convolution sums and applications: 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.
 Representations of numbers by quadartic forms: We find number of representations of an integer by certain quadratic forms by computing modular forms/ theta series.
