Prof. Anirban Chakraborti

Joined the Centre for Complex Systems Studies, SC & IS, Jawaharlal Nehru University, as a Professor in 2014. I obtained a Ph.D. in Physics from the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, India and then the Habilitation in Physics from Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI), France. I have the experience of working as a scientist in many reputed universities and educational institutions in India, Europe and USA. I was awarded the prestigious Young Scientist medal of the Indian National Science Academy in 2009.


My research focuses on statistical physics and its interdisciplinary application to problems in complex systems in economic and social sciences, and combinatorial optimization. I have also research experience in: (i) Theoretical and computational condensed matter physics, and (ii) Quantum physics and studies of quantum entanglement.
