Research Areas:   His research focuses on the atmospheric dynamics in mesosphere-lower thermosphere (MLT) region (80-110 km) caused by upward propagating atmospheric waves like tides, planetary waves and their interactions. Also of interest is the coupling effect between the MLT region and the Ionosphere through upward propagating planetary wave type oscillations (PWTO).
