We are computational condensed matter group involved in understanding and predicting how quantum many-body interactions dictate exotic and emergent electronic, magnetic, optical and transport properties in advanced materials. We employ state-of-the-art and hierarchical first-principles theories along with the model Hamiltonians. Broadly we are interested in,

(a) Two-dimensional materials and their heterostructures
(b) Quantum materials, strong electron correlations and topology
(c) Magnetism and superconductivity
(d) Materials for sustainable energy

For more details please follow our research page.

We are looking for motivated candidates for PhD and SERB-NPDF funded postdoctoral positions. The sucessful candidates will choose to work on (m)any of the above projects. Prespective PhD and PDF candidates should enquire through email.
