About the Faculty
Joined the Physics Group at BITS Pilani (Pilani Campus) in December 2001, where I was associated with the Distance Learning Programme Division. I moved to the Goa Campus in December 2004.
My research interests include Foundations of Quantum Theory, Quantum Information Theory, Mathematical Physics (formal quantization), Many-body Physics (multi-particle clusters, anyon physics, fractional statistics), and High Energy Physics (gravitation, string theory)
I have also done some research on the acoustic characteristics and construction mechanics of Indian musical instruments.
Passionate about physics teaching, I try out different methods of active learning and blended learning in my classes.
I've written a text book on Quantum Physics and Quantum Information addressed to undergraduate students, published by CRC Press in 2015
I have an abiding interest in Indian Classical music as a vocalist and play the Sarasvati veena.
I'm an avid bird-watcher, love painting and sketching and messing about in gardening.
