Biographical Sketch :
I joined MIT in January 2001 as an Assistant Professor of Physics. Before that, I spent a few years as a postdoctoral fellow at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics in Santa Barbara, CA. My graduate degree is from Yale University, and my undergraduate degree is from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. I am a Simons Investigator (2013 -2023) of the Simons Foundation.
My research is in the theory of quantum matter. This is the branch of theoretical physics that deals with quantum systems with many degrees of freedom. It is of fundamental relevance to understanding electronic solids which are my main focus. More detail on my research interests can be found here.
