Dr. B. Sharmila

I did my MSc Physics at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM), and pursued my doctoral research also at IITM under the guidance of Prof. S. Lakshmibala. My doctoral thesis, titled 'Signatures of nonclassical effects in tomograms', is on estimating nonclassical effects such as revivals, squeezing and bipartite entanglement, directly from tomograms, circumventing detailed state reconstruction. A significant outcome of my work is the identification of useful and reliable tomographic entanglement indicators in generic quantum systems including systems that were investigated in recent experiments pertaining to NMR spectroscopy and biphoton frequency combs. I will be joining Prof. Animesh Datta's group at the University of Warwick as a post-doc shortly.

Dr. Aradhya Kumar Shukla

Aradhya Shukla has completed his Ph.D. from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. He did his first post-doc from IISER Kolkata, India during 2015-2017 then for the second post-doc, he joined Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, China in 2018. Currently, he is working as a senior research associate at IISER Kolkata, India. His research interests are gauge and gravity theories, chiral anomaly and chiral kinetic theory, Supersymmetry and PT-symmetry.

Dr. Shreya Banerjee

Shreya Banerjee has recently finished her Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Kolkata in 2021. During her Ph. D., she has explored several avenues of theoretical quantum information and computation. She is a reviewer of the Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical, IOP Science, and the Quantum Information Processing, Springer Science. During her career, she has received fellowships from the Ministry of Human Resource and Development, India, and the prestigious Inspire fellowship from the Department of Science and Technology, India.

Anant V. Varma

Our research group is working on theoretical quantum dynamics. We investigate the quantum properties of open quantum systems described by non-Hermitian Hamiltonians or Lindblad equations. We aim to develop models where a given non-Hermitian dynamics can be realized. We are also interested in phase transition owing to non-Hermiticity of a quantum system. We believe to think that our ideas are useful in experimentally accessing the non-Hermitian signatures of quantum system and could be relevant in the field of quantum information processing

Gargi Tyagi

I have completed my master's in Applied Physics (Silver Medalist) from Amity University, Noida. I did my master thesis from IISER Kolkata and worked as a project assistant in the field of Quantum Optics. Currently, I am working with Dr. Johannes Borregaard in the field of Quantum Optics.

Sagnik Dutta

I am Sagnik Dutta, a recently passed out Integrated BS-MS student in Physics from IISER Kolkata. With gradual research experiences through various internships and courses I have gathered profound knowledge on Foundations of Quantum mechanics and Quantum Information Theory. My master's thesis work titled 'Characterization of Operational Framework for Non-locality' gave a finer characterization of Bi-local correlations along with some corrections of previous framework. During my master's study I have received the prestigious INSPIRE fellowship from the Department of Science and Technology, India.

Ashutosh Goswami

Ashutosh Goswami was born in Varanasi, India, in 1994. He received a Bachelor's degree from BHU, Varanasi, in 2014, with a Physics major, and a master's degree in Physics from IISER, Kolkata, in 2017. His master's thesis was in the field of quantum information and quantum computing. Currently, he is a Ph.D. student at the University of Grenoble, France, working on a thesis dedicated to quantum error correction codes, particularly on a family of codes known as quantum polar codes.

Abhinash Kumar Roy

Abhinash Kumar Roy is a final year BS-MS student at Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Kolkata. He is interested in the field of Relativistic quantum information, Quantum computation and Quantum optics. He has worked on quantum gravity, geometric quantification of quantum entanglement and its application to complementarity in optics.

Nitish Kumar Chandra

Nitish Kumar Chandra is a final year BS-MS student in Physics from IISER Kolkata. He is working in the field of quantum information and computation particularly, in the characterization and quantification aspect of quantum correlations. He has received the prestigious Inspire Fellowship from the Department of Science and Technology, India.
