In case you want to get a better idea of what I do, have a look at
my list of publications.
Here is my video lecture course,
Relativistic Quantum Mechanics,
as part of the NPTEL programme.
Its PDF files are: Module1,
Module2,
Module3,
Exercises.
My work on genetic languages has received wide publicity.
Our work on "A Software Simulator for Noisy Quantum Circuits"
has been expanded, and launched nationally by MeitY as a
"Quantum Computer Simulator Toolkit".
