About me!

I graduated from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, in 2020, with an Integrated (BS + MS) Master of Science in Physics. Currently, I am employed as Research Assistant at Theoretical Quantum Physics Laboratory at Riken, in Wako-shi, Japan until mid 2021. After which, I plan to start my Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Physics. Throughout my undergraduate years at IIT Kharagpur, my interest has been deeply inclined to Quantum Computing, its foundations and physical realization.

I believe in group research as much as I believe in individual ideas. So, do not hesitate if you are willing to work with me for a scientific collaboration or just willing to discuss scientific ideas in and around my research interests. Apart from physics academics, I enjoy Chess and adventurous sport!

Pre-Ph.D. and Undergraduate Timeline

As an undergraduate, my goal was to obtain as much research experience as possible. It was a very personal objective for me to work in all areas of quantum information and computing computing including the realizations in quantum optics and condensed matter theory. I wanted to work in an experimental lab at least once to find the best suited sub-disciple for myself in quantum computing. This was best possible by pursuing various research visits as internships around the globe. After that I pursued a research assistant position for an year to prepare myself better for research in Ph.D. To comprehend and be comfortable with the theme of the industrial research in quantum computing, I worked as a quantum algorithm developer and quantum theorist at an Indian startup BosonQ Psi. Pvt. Ltd.
