About me

My journey started in a humble yet vibrant background of a rural place in Karnataka. In search of paths to explore and understand the phenomenons of the universe around me, I took upon a bachelor’s degree in basic sciences, and completed my masters in physics from the National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Surathkal. After the masters, I spent some time at Raman Research Institute (RRI) as a visiting student, wherein, I happened to meet Dr R Srikanth and ended up discussing with him various foundational topics in Quantum theory (QT).  By the virtue of being the first rank holder at NITK in my masters, I was able to secure the prestigious INSPIRE fellowship of the Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India, to join Dr R Srikanth as a PhD student at the Poornaprajna Institute of Scientific Research (PPISR), Bengaluru. This PhD was in affiliation with the Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) – then called the Manipal University, a deemed university. Around the end of December 2016, I finalized and submitted my PhD thesis and joined the Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMSc), Chennai, as a postdoctoral fellow. I defended my thesis in June 2017. Two years later, I visited Prof Gurprasad Kar at the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Kolkata, for about six months. During this time, as I was looking to extend my fields of study and to acquire new tools, I approached Prof Arul Lakshminarayan of the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM), Chennai, with a proposal involving using the information theoretic tools to understand the dynamics of the quantum many-body systems especially the quantum chaos.
