Background and activities
My research interests are focused primarily on the analytical and fundamental aspects of the Casimir effect, which describes the modification of the vacuum state in the presence of macroscopic objects. I have explored problems on how the vacuum energy falls under gravity; Casimir interactions between weakly interacting dielectric objects; the Casimir repulsion arising due to the geometry of interacting objects and the anisotropy in the material properties of the interacting objects; infinitesimally thin 2-dimensional objects described using $\delta$-function potential interacting with electromagnetic field; and investigation of the divergences appearing in the vacuum energy in the presence of the spatially varying background potential, and its renormalization.
