I am an experimental physicist, have been working on strongly correlated electron systems in the field of condensed matter physics. More specifically, I am interested in “quantum materials” and to study those complex systems I have been employing mainly two powerful microscopic techniques (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Muon Spin Rotation/Relaxation).
I have started my research journey by pursuing Ph. D. from the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics. Afterward, I spent several years as a post-doctoral researcher, starting at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids, Germany and then moved to the University of Tokyo, Japan. Finally, I was doing my post-doc at the University of Augsburg, Germany.
