I am a theoretical physicist and a Research Associate at the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics at Newcastle University, working at the intersection of condensed matter physics and atomic, molecular and optical (AMO) physics. My current research, in association with Dr. Andrew Baggaley and Dr. Nick Parker, involves studying the influence of dipoledipole interactions upon the characteristics of quantum turbulence in dipolar superfluids, such as BoseEinstein condensates (BECs) of elements such as chromium (Cr), dysprosium (Dy) and erbium (Er).
I am originally from Bangalore, India, but grew up in Melbourne, Australia, where I attended the University of Melbourne from 2012  2021. After graduating with an undergraduate degree in mathematical physics in 2014, I completed a masters degree in 2016 with a thesis on quantum phase transitions in bosonic lattice systems with threebody interactions, supervised by Prof. Andy M. Martin. Subsequently, I continued in Prof. Martin's group while researching the effects of rotating magnetic fields upon magnetic dipolar BoseEinstein condensates, graduating with a PhD in 2021.
Research Interests
 Ultracold quantum fluids (BoseEinstein condensates, degenerate Fermi gases)
 Quantum turbulence
 Bosonic Hubbard models (BoseHubbard, JaynesCummingsHubbard)
 Fewbody fermionic systems (reduced density matrices, Nrepresentability)
