I graduated from IIT Kharagpur with integrated MS in Physics. My field of interest is Quantum Information (QI) & Quantum Computation (QC) and its intersection with Condensed Matter Physics and Quantum Optics (light-matter interaction). I am primarily interested in foundations of quantum theory, correlations (entanglement & Discord), open systems and decoherence, quantum algorithms and protocols, architecture of Q. Computing (via graph theory), and realization of Q. Info. processing via Cavity-QED, ion traps, superconducting circuits, and topological matter (braiding statistics). CondensedMatter aspects such as correlated quantum matter, quantum magnetism and many-body systems are of great interest to me. During my undergraduate years, I have visited many research groups and contributed to QI/QC over all the above topics. I aspire to pursue a Ph.D. (theory) in QI/QC with a blend of Condensed Matter and Quantum Optics.
