prof. dr. A. (Anupam) Mazumdar

Associate Professor
prof. dr. A. (Anupam) Mazumdar



I am interested in following topics:
(1) Early Universe Cosmology, Inflation, Preheating/Reheating, 
(2) Embedding Inflation within Particle and String theory, 
(3) Primordial Gravitational waves, Cosmological sources, Lattice simulations
(4) Common origin behind Dark matter & Baryogenesis
(5) Resolving cosmological and blackhole singularitites
(6) Asymptotically free and ghost free theory of Quantum Gravity, UV Completion of Einstein's Gravity
(7) Beyond the Standard Model, SUSY, MSSM Flat Directions, Q-Balls, Topological and Non-topological Solitons
(8) Primordial magnetic field and its geneartions
(9) Cosmobiology & habitability or habitable zones in the Universe

If you wish to do PhD at University of Groningen on: Inflationary Cosmology, Beyond the Standard Model Physics, Supersymmetric Cosmology, Dark Matter & Baryogenesis, Primordial Gravitational Waves, Asymptotically Free Quantum Gravity and its connection to String field theory, Resolution of Big Bang Cosmological singularity & Blackhole Singularity problems, contact me for further
