I am a theoretical physicist working in the general area of Theoretical Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics in the Department of Theoretical Physics , Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) , Mumbai, India.
My main research interest is the study of the properties of strongly interacting quantum many-body systems, both in and out of thermal equilibrium. I am interested in standard condensed matter systems like high temperature superconductors and graphene, as well as in systems made of ultracold atoms, a newly growing research area at the junction of condensed matter and atomic physics.
I did my undergraduate studies in Physics from Presidency College, Kolkata (recently renamed Presidency University) and my masters degree from Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai. I did my doctoral work from the Department of Physics, The Ohio State University , Columbus, Ohio. This was followed by post-doctoral research at Harvard University and at the Condensed Matter Theory Center of the University of Maryland, College Park before joining TIFR.
