Biographical Sketch :

I  joined MIT in January 2001 as an Assistant Professor of Physics. Before that, I spent a few years as a postdoctoral fellow at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics in Santa Barbara, CA. My graduate degree is from Yale University , and my undergraduate degree is from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur.  In January 2005 I took leave from MIT to join the faculty of the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, India. I returned to MIT in February 2007.  I am also a Distinguished Visiting Research Chair (2011-2017) at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, and have been appointed a Simons Investigator (2013 -2018) by the Simons Foundation.
