Dr. Muhammad Bhatti
Hi, My name Muhammad Bhatti. I graduated from the University of Notre Dame. I am a full Professor at UTRGV, My research interests are in the area of Atomic and Molecular and Optical Physics, Environmental Physics, Alternative Energy Resources, Computational Physics and Mathematical Sciences as well as STEM Education. I have been developing new powerful techniques, Bsplines and BPolynomials, including parallel computation algorithms to computational physics for solving fundamental problems in physics. These techniques are currently being applied to exploring precision structure of matter, modeling of anticancer molecules, linear and nonlinear problems in optics, nanotechnology, quantum computers and cancer treatment using Electromagnetic Radio Frequency (RF) waves.
