Socially Relevant Research

A major part of my research work has been devoted to the use of fuzzy and neutrosophic mathematical tools to the study of sociological problems. Though my earlier specialization was in pure algebra, in keeping with my research philosophy, I decided that mathematics could be made of immense significance in finding a solution to the real world's everyday problems. Some of the socially relevant issues to which I have applied fuzzy and neutrosophic mathematics are:

1. Socio-psychological problems of migrant labourers with HIV/AIDS
2. Dissemination of information and awareness about AIDS
