    Brief biodata

      Following his Ph.D. degree from IISc, Bangalore from Material Research Center, he had worked as Postdoctoral fellow under Prof. G. Ananthakrishna. He had done his masters in Physics from IIT, Guwahati. His research interest involve Theretical Materials Science and Condensed Matter Physics, in particular far from equilibrium systems, and Plasticity theory. He has been a faculty member of the department of physics since 2014.


      Our research is focused understading complex dynamics shown in driven dissipative systems, in particular systems far from equilibrium system. We used non-equilibrium statistical mechanics and nonlinear dynamics as tools for both qualitative and quantitative measures.
