I am a theoretical physicist working primarily in the area of Quantum Information Sciences. I am faculty member at the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai, India. Prior to this I was working as a researcher at Quantum Systems Unit of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology located in the southernmost island of Japan, Okinawa.
I completed my B.Sc from National College (Jayanagar) Bangalore, India. In 2002, I moved to University of Oxford, UK on Rhodes Scholarship. At Oxford, I worked on experimental Bose-Einstein condensates in Ultra-cold quantum matter group (Prof. C. J. Foot’s group), Clarendon Laboratory, Atomic and Laser Physics department. While at Oxford, my interest towards theoretical aspects of quantum information theory and quantum computing lead me to Waterloo, Canada which houses Institute for Quantum Computing and Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. At Waterloo, I worked under the guidelines of Prof. R. Laflamme and completed my Ph.D in 2009.
