Dr. Sushil Kumar
Associate Professor


Expert Areas :

Dr. Sushil Kumar, Associate Professor of Physics,received his M.Sc. degree from I.I.T.  Roorkee (formerly University of Roorkee) and Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics from Panjab University, Chandigarh . His Ph. D. work was concerned with the alpha and cluster-decay studies of various nuclei, from light mass region to super heavy mass region in the nuclear chart. Dr. Sushil Kumar has visited the University of Messina, Italy where he has chaired one session in International Symposium based on the Quasifission Process in Heavy Ion Reactions and presented his work in 2010. Dr. Sushil Kumar has successfully organized an International Conference on “Recent Trends in Nuclear Physics-2012” with the support of the DST, DAE-BRNS, CSIR, UGC, and INSA. He has also published the conference proceeding in AIP, the USA as an editor. Presently Dr. Sushil Kumar is an editor of the Physics Journal; “Journal of Nuclear Physics, Material Sciences, Radiation, and Applications”, a refereed and indexed journal with worldwide reputed Advisory Board and Editorial Board members. The Journal has published many issues and getting a good response from the research community.

In June 2014, Dr. Sushil has presented his work at JINR, Dubna, Russia, being a member of first official India-JINR Forum

Dr. Sushil is an active blogger and has a youtube channel where he has covered many physics topics efficiently, a number of video views signify its importance. apni Physics web blog was founded by Dr. Sushil Kumar, for the benefit of students and fellow physicists alike.

apni Physics is an effort to create a better platform and also to help the students to be able to have content at their hands whenever they want, online. Dr. Sushil continues to upload his lectures and post articles about latest researches in physics, academic, physics education, and also lessons about daily life and how physics define every aspect of our everyday movement and life.

Dr. Sushil Kumar observed that mostly teacher use analogy in the classroom to explain the physical pictures in modern time too.

He had started his video lectures since 2013 and applies various tools to develop the physical concept effectively. He is tech-savvy and uses computer applications (software and hardware) in his video lectures effectively. He uses;

  1. Picture into picture mode video lectures
  2. Simulations
  3. Animations
  4. Graphics tablet+ digital pen
  5. Various Screen recorder in a different mode
  6. A direct camera recorded videos
  7. and Green screen

He himself edit the video and add to the text, transitions, zooming, animation, and subtitle within different languages.

He is not only creating the digital content but playing with the search engines too. Dr. Sushil, uses SEO principles for web posts and pages and keens in digital marketing. Role of the keywords, selection of the keywords, Click per charges (CPC), etc., uses effectively by him because of that some posts and pages rank on the first page of google.

He always learns new things about digital technologies and effectively used that scientifically for research and publications purposes. He learns and shares the information with his colleagues to make aware of various social media importance.

He has guided more than six M. Phil students and was the mentor of one Ph.D. student. Dr. Sushil Kumar gives a talk at Nuclear Physics Meet held from June 26-30, 2015 which was organized by Prof. Suresh K. Patra at Institute of Physics, Bhubaneswar on the occasion of the 40th-year academic celebration of the Institute.

In addition to this, he has also delivered an invited talk at the Govt. College, Kathua, Jammu in two days National Conference on “Role of Mathematics and Computer Science in Advancement of Physics-2016” from 26thto 27th February 2016. Dr. Sushil Kumar is a life member of Indian Nuclear Society, India. Dr. Sushil Kumar is an avid researcher and has published his work in renowned international Journals.

Recently, he had attended one-week advanced level training programme on Bibliometrics and Research Output Analysis during 22nd – 27th July 2019 at INFLIBNET.
