Research Areas

Non-Equilibrium Statistical Physics, Econo-Physics, Financial Modeling & Actuarial Sciences

My research and thesis is on Non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics (NESM) applied to Atomic Energy Commission. I presented my work at the Bose Conference of Contemporary Physics in March 2008 in the Department of Physics, University of Dhaka jointly organized by the University of Dhaka and the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Italy. I am also familiar with the world of financial Economics and actuarial science, my observation is that the methods and framework used in NESM are versatile, and especially applicable to actuarial science. For example, the concepts of fractals could be a very useful tool for actuarial dynamism. Further more, in particular, Aggregation could be a solid candidate for the development of statistical methodology used in actuarial studies. One of my goals is to introduce relevant concepts from the Physicists toolkit into Actuarial science & Financial Modeling.
