Goutam is the principal investigator of SpIN group at IISER-Mohali. He obtained his PhD degree from Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in 2007. Goutam attended Northwestern University and Argonne National Laboratories for postdoctoral research before joining IISER Mohali in May, 2012. His principal research interest includes the experimental investigation of the topologically non-trivial systems (like topological insulators, topological superconductors, Weyl semimetals, Dirac semimetals etc.) using scanning probe microscopy and transport spectroscopy at ultra-low temperatures and high magnetic fields.
After completing his M.Sc from the University of Calcutta, Soumyadip joined as a PhD student in 2015. He is involved in the electronic transport properties of perovskite oxide interfaces down to sub-Kelvin temperatures. Soumyadip is a hardcore gamer with his preference in PC as a platform.
Soumya completed his M.Sc from the University of Calcutta and joined the group in 2016 as a PhD student. His research interest is to understand the consequences of different broken symmetries in unconventional superconductors, using various spectroscopic imaging methods. Watching world cinemas is Soumya’s hobby.
After completing his master’s from IIT Delhi, Sandeep joined IISER PhD programme in 2016. His research interests include investigation of novel physical properties (like superconductivity and ferromagnetism) coexisting in exotic novel materials (like magnetic Weyl semimetals) using scanning probe microscopy & spectroscopy. Sandeep is a dedicated android gamer and an anime fan.
Monika earned her M.Sc from Guru Jambheshwar University of Science and Technology, Hisar and joined IISER PhD programme in 2018. Her research project is to fabricate types of artificial lattices using thin film deposition techniques alongside electron beam lithography and then to study their properties using AFM and MFM. Monika loves to cook food, especially with dairy products.
