Dr. Ishwaree Neupane’s research has centred on the exploration of phenomena at the interface of gravitation, cosmology, astrophysical and superstring theory. It underpins fundamental studies on theories of early Universe inflation, cosmological perturbations, brane worlds, time-dependent solutions of supergravity and superstring theories, models of dark energy and black hole physics. He plans to continue the investigation of this rich arena. Among his most important contributions to brane world literature is his well-cited paper (with Cho and Wesson) published in Nuclear Physics B, where he was first to show the absence of ghost states in the Randall-Sundrum brane models of co-dimension one. An explicit construction of intersecting brane-world configurations in arbitrary D dimensions, including the effects of higher-curvature terms, and thermodynamic stability analyses of higher-derivative black holes are among his important contributions to brane world cosmology and black hole physics. He holds an h-index of 20 (a measure to quantify the scientific impact of individual scientists) and has an excellentpublishing track record, reflected in my 30 plus journal articles with over 1250 citations in the SPIRES database, which include over a dozen influential papers on my own and also in collaboration.
