I am working in the field of nuclear theory and astrophysics focusing mainly on developing nuclear energy density
functionals of the relativistic mean-field model and have recently generated and tested two newly parameter sets
(IOPB-I and G3) in different regimes such as finite nuclei, infinite nuclear matter, and the neutron star. Also,
I use the equation of state of neutron-star matter to calculate stellar properties of the neutron star such as
composition, mass,radii, moments of inertia, tidal deformability, and gravitational wave emissions.
