“My research interests are in the field of graph theory which is a major area of combinatorics. I have worked on several topics in graph theory such as average connectivity in digraphs, distance in graphs, domination theory in graphs, extremal graph theory, graph colourings, hamiltonicity, homogeneous embeddings of graphs, Ramsey theory, Steiner distance in graphs, and transversals in hyper graphs. My favourite topic is in the area of domination theory in graphs. My current research is on total domination in graphs and transversals in hyper graphs (with Anders Yeo from Royal Holloway, University of London).” 

Key areas of expertise:
​Combinatorics, Graph theory.
