Research: Materials Science and Engineering & Experimental Condensed Matter Physics


Dr. Subhash is a Materials Scientist & Experimental Condensed Matter Physicist whose research interests are driven by current experimental observations that challenge the standard paradigms of Magnetism, Charge-transport, Spincaloritronics or Magneto-dielectrics. He earned his Ph.D. from Materials Science Programme of Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur in 2009. Subsequently, he spent two years as a Postdoctoral fellow working on Magnetic-Superlattices from the CNRS laboratory CRISMAT located at Caen, France. Currently he is working as Professor at the Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati.
