I am a theoretical physicist interested in a wide-range of fundamental questions. I specialize in quantum field theory and string theory. Currently I am an Assistant Professor and Ramanujan Fellow in the Department of Physics, IIT Madras. Previously I have worked at LPTHE UPMC Sorbonne Universities Paris, Ecole Polytechnique Palaiseau, CEA-Saclay, CERN, CCTP and CCQCN at University of Crete and also TU Vienna as a senior Lise-Meitner Fellow.
I take teaching passionately because it presents me challenges for re-learning basic principles in new ways and opportunities for humble sharing of knowledge with those who will shape our future.
CURRENT RESEARCH INTEREST
Quantum Field Theory and String Theory, Quantum Many-Body Systems, Black holes and other topics in classical and quantum gravity
