This achievement of his still mentioned with a sense of pride by Netarhat Vidyalay .He received PhD on Reproducing Kernels and Operators with a Cyclic Vector from University of California, Berkeley, in 1969.After his PhD, he worked at NASA and then returned to India in 1973 to teach at ISI Kolkata, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur and TIFR Bombay. In 2014 he was appointed as guest faculty in Bhupendra Narayan Mandal University (BNMU) inMadhepura as a visiting professor.

 -Reproducing kernels and operators with a cyclic vector.
 "Certain generalized hypergeometric identities of the Rogers-Ramanujan type", 
"Certain generalized hypergeometric identities of the Rogers-Ramanujan type (II)",
 "A note on the computation of Alder's polynomials," 
"An analytic generalization of the Rogers-Ramanujan Identities for odd moduli"
