Dr. Satyaki Kar is an alumni of Sodepur High School, Presidency College, Jawaharlal Nehru University and Florida State University. In 2010, he received his Ph.D. degree from Florida State University for his work on theoretical Condensed Matter Physics. Since then he has served as an Assistant Professor at University of North Florida for a couple of years and then did several post-doctoral research works in various research institutes in Kolkata and Bhubaneswar. His analytic and numerical research works hovers around Quantum Many body physics with emphasis on strongly  correlated  electron  systems, quantum magnetism, non-equilibrium dynamics, transport in Dirac materials and quantum computation.

More specifically, his research interests include

i) Studying charge transport in 2D models of superconducting cuprates,
ii) Simulating Quantum ground and low energy states in non-frustrated bosonic or spin models using quantum Monte Carlo method,
iii) Probing entanglement relationship to quantum criticality under periodic quenching,
iv) Studying nonequilibrium dynamics in Dirac-like systems using Floquet theory.

  • Recently, Dr. Kar is more involved in probing fermion transport in Dirac materials, graphene junctions, topological insulators and Weyl semimetals and looking for students to accompany his research.
