Biography

Dr. Shankhadeep Chakrabortty is affiliated to the Department of Physics, IIT Ropar as an Assistant Professor since 1st December, 2016. His broad research interest is String Theory, AdS/CFT correspondence, Quantum Field Theory. He accomplished his PhD degree in 2013 from Institute of Physics(IOP), Bhubaneswar. After that he joined as a postdoctoral fellow in the Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMSc), Chennai. Then he was a postdoctoral fellow in the string theory group at IISER-Pune. After that, with Erasmus Mundus-Namaste postdoctoral fellowship, he joined Van Swinderen Institute for Particle Physics and Gravity, University of Groningen,  Netherlands. Before joining IIT Ropar as an Assistant Professor, he was a postdoctoral fellow in IIT Kanpur.

Research

My broad research interest is exploring holographic nature of quantum gravity. Quantum information theory and quantum chaos play key role to understand such holographic nature of gravity. My recent research interest is to study quantum information theory as well as quantum chaos in quantum field theory (QFT) sometime preserving the conformal symmetry and investigate the validity of the results in the dual gravitational theory by virtue of AdS/CFT correspondence. I also take interest in understanding zero tension limit as well as infinite tension limit of string theory.
