Dr. Mufti has always been excited and curious about Theoretical Physics and Mathematics. Understanding the nature at its most fundamental and the universe around us as a whole has been the driving force for him throughout his studies and research. He is also fascinated about the immense role of computations and simulations in Theoretical Physics and, to some extent, Mathematics.

Throughout his Ph.D. research, he focused on the electroweak sector of the Standard Model, the so-called Yang-Mills-Higgs theory, while using lattice simulation method which provides a non-perturbative approach to investigate the Standard Model. A number of Lagrangian (propagators and) vertices in minimal Landau gauge were non-perturbatively computed, and spectroscopy in the theory  has been explored along with a few other aspects of the theory. His work demonstrated significance of non-perturbative aspects in the theory.

Currently, he is further exploring the sector and expanding his research activities in and beyond the Standard Model with emphasis on non-perturbative approaches.
