I am a 6th year Ph.D. student majoring in experimental condensed matter physics at University of Pittsburgh. I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. David Snoke.
I joined Dr. Snoke's group in the spring of 2017 and since then I have been engaged in studying fascinating properties of liquid light created inside a III-V semiconductor microcavity using optical techniques. My research focuses on studying the dynamics of a polariton condensate in a ring geometry. Some questions partially addressed in my work are: 1. How does a trapped one-dimensional nonequilibrium condensate thermalize following a quench? 2. How to apply drag force on a superfluid of photons?
Earlier, I studied the relative phase dynamics of two coupled one-dimensional Bose-Einstein condensates using theoretical techniques from quantum optics and many-body physics with Prof. David Pekker.
I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelors (Honours) and Masters in Physics from Indian Insititue of Technology Kharagpur. In my undergraduate research I investigated cascaded second-order processes for developing tunable optical parametric amplifiers and modelocked picosecond lasers. I was advised by Prof. Prasanta Kumar Datta.
