My main focus is investigating the nature of the strong interactions from a phenomenological point of view. To this end, I work towards understanding the internal dynamics of hadrons via computer simulations in the framework of lattice formulation of QCD. Specifically, my interests lie in the structure functions or form factors and the spectrum of the hadrons, be it conventional or exotic.
