Profile Summary 

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.

Sample synthesis- Solid-state reaction technique.

Characterizing tools-

  • Macroscopic/bulk properties - magnetization, specific heat etc.
  • Microscopic static and dynamic properties by employing-
  1. Muon Spin Rotation / Relaxation (µSR), µSR under High-pressure.
  2. Broad-band solid-state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Nuclear Quadrupolar Resonance (NQR), Zero Field NMR.
  • Augsburg University fellowship.
  • Tokyo University fellowship.
