### Research Focus

Research area: finite group theory

My research interests lie in group theory, particularly finite groups. I apply combinatorial structures, especially graphs, to study finite groups. In most of my research works, we define a graph based on group properties and explore graph theoretical properties to find information about the group. Lately, I have also been interested in studying finite groups through other combinatorial structures, specifically simplicial complexes associated with them.
