My published work so far can be categorized into following four themes:

(a) Structural Dynamics 

(b) Uncertainty Analysis

(c) Protective Engineering

(d) Miscellaneous

Currently, I am interested into fractional structural dynamics. If any one wish to work or collaborate on this type of work, please do not hesitate to contact me at .
