The general theme of research is theoretical studies in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, extended irreversible thermodynamics for systems far removed from equilibrium, generalized hydrodynamics, and stochastic systems. In these investigations, formal theories are first developed and then they are studied by means of suitable numerical methods for computation of various thermodynamic, conformational, and transport properties of fluids.
