From the dust to the stars, everything is Physics.


I completed my undergraduate studies from India, and later went to England for a postgraduate degree in Particles, String's and Cosmology. For my dissertation in Durham with my Advior Ruth Gregory (Currently in King's College, London) I worked on Cosmology and string theory and studied how Cosmic inflation was embedded in String theory with the help of D-branes. This lead me to String Landscape and the Swampland. This Vast range of consistent 4 dimensional effective field theories, arising in string theory is called the string Landscape. You can email me to learn more and I am always happy to chat about it.

For the first year of my PhD I was working on a quantum mechanical model of Majorana fermions with random interactions, this is called the SYK Model (Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev Model). What's special about this model is, that in the low energy limit where the theory is strongly coupled, its effective action has a schwarzian derivative, this derivative is also found in the action of the holographic description of J-T dilaton gravity (Jackiw-Teiteleboim). In other words the SYK model, in the low energy limit, is dual to 2D J-T gravity.


My PhD advisor is Claudia Ratti, who completed her Phd from Torino University, Italy and is a Tenured Professor at University of Houston and the Physics Department Associate chair.
About the picture: The picture above was taken in the summer after my postgraduation, when I went traveling across the UK. This was taken outside the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge.

Current Research

My research focus revolves around employing holographic models to delve into the complexities of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). One of the central objectives of my doctoral research is to develop an equation of state (EoS) for QCD matter under extreme conditions, such as those found in the early universe or in the cores of neutron stars. Since our traditional perturbative methods are insufficient to describe stronly coupled theories like QCD, by utilizing the AdS/CFT correspondence, which establishes a duality between certain gravitational theories in Anti-de Sitter space (AdS) in d dimensions and conformal field theories (CFT) in d-1 dimensions, we want to construct a holographic model that can effectively capture the non-perturbative dynamics of QCD.

My interests are not limited to this. I am also interested in the following;

  • Quantum Entanglement
  • Quantum Information
  • Eigenstate Thermalisation Hypothesis
  • Quantum Foundations
  • ...and many more (Talk to me)
