I am an Assistant Professor in the Physics department at Cornell University. Here is my official webpage. I am looking for motivated graduate students and postdocs to join my group. I also have projects available for undergraduate students. 

I was a Moore fellow, supported by the EPiQS initiative of the Gordon and Betty Moore foundation, in the Physics department at MIT until June 2019. I completed my Ph.D. in Physics from Harvard University under the guidance of  Prof. Subir Sachdev in 2016. Prior to that, I did my Masters (Integrated-5 year) in Physics from IIT Kanpur, India.

I work in the branch of theoretical Physics, known as condensed matter Physics, and my aim is to understand the interesting properties of exotic materials, such as unconventional superconductors and quantum spin liquids, from a fundamental microscopic point of view. One of the problems that excites me the most these days is related to the Physics of 'magic-angle' graphene and other related platforms. More recently, I have also become interested in understanding various formal aspects of thermalization and quantum chaos from the  point of view of quantum information. In the past, I have worked on many interesting problems in a number of different areas, with a major emphasis on non-equilibrium phenomena in biophysics, synchronization and integrable quantum spin systems.
