Ph.D. (Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, 2005) ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR
Dr. Kaushik Bhattacharya joined the Department in 2008. He obtained his doctoral degree at the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, India, working under the supervision of Prof. Palash Baran Pal. Subsequently he carried out postdoctoral research in Physical Research Laboratory (PRL), Ahmedabad and Instituto de Ciencias Nucleares (ICN) in the National Autononomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in Mexico City.
He is a theoretical particle physicist , whose chief interest lies in elementary particle interactions in presence of a background medium and background classical fields like the magnetic fields. His interests also lie in problems related with astro-particle physics, in particular problems in cosmology. Currently, he is working on cosmology and quantum field theory in non-trivial background.
