Barnali Chakrabarti

Associate Professor

My research interest is closely related to the formulation of quantum many-body theory of ultracold trapped bosons. The research activity of my group is focused on the investigations of quantum and statistical properties of weakly interacting Bose gas. Our research activity also involves the applications of our ab initio  quantum many-body calculation to study structural properties of atomic clusters and molecules. Our group is also actively engaged in the theoretical study of quantum chaos and thermalization of eigenstates which is very recently experimentally observed in the optical lattice. I did my M.Sc in Physics with Nuclear Physics specialization  (1994) and PhD(2000) on development of 3-D supersymmetric quantum mechanics. I did my Postdoc in the field of quantum chaos in HongKong Baptist University and in the field of Bose Einstein condensation in University of Oklahoma. I am member of theoretical Chemistry group of University of Heidelberg (Germany). Presently I am collaborating with ICTP, University of Padova (Italy), University of Sao Paulo (Brazil), University of Heidelberg (Germany) and University of South Africa (South Africa). I have published 60 research papers in the peer reviewed International scientific journals and 6 research papers in National peer-reviewed journals. I have been awarded ICTP (International Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy) Regular Associateship for 7 yrs 2015-2021.
