Arjun is a member of the following School research institute, research group and research areas:

Research interests

My research areas are in Quantum Field Theory and Statistical Physics. My primary research interests are in early universe cosmology theory.  I also have research interest in turbulence.  My interests in cosmology have been focused on developing a more complete description of the early phases of the Big-Bang through my model called warm inflation, which I created in the mid-90s.  My work in this direction involves particle physics and nonequilibrium quantum field theory.

In the past few years I have taught courses in Quantum and Statistical Physics and Quantum Field Theory.

Arjun has featured in the following recent School news stories:
