The major activities are centred around two broad topics.  

A) To study the real time response of the nuclear many-body system at finite temperature and angular momentum.This is achieved through exclusive measurements of high energy Giant Dipole Resonance (GDR) gamma-rays. The measurements are carried out at TIFR, Mumbai and IUAC, Delhi using state-of-the art detection facilities, namely, large volume NaI(Tl) and LaBr3:Ce detectors, a 4p sum-spin spectrometer, and gas-filled magnetic spectrometer.  Our primary goal is to search for very rare quantum shape-phase transitions and discovering  higher order giant multipole oscillations in hot nuclei. 

B) Detailed theoretical investigations of the structural properties of newly discovered light neutron-rich halo nuclei using full three-body Faddeev calculations.  We  search for the elusive and fascinating Efimov effect in nuclei like, 11Li, 14Be, 20C, 36Ne, 38Mg etc.
