Supriya K. Kar
Supriya K. Kar was born in Balasore, India, in 1967. He has received his Ph.D. degree from the Institute of Physics, Bhubaneswar, India, in 1995. From 1995 to 1996, he served as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Harish-Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad, India. Then, he joined the University of Tokyo, Komaba, Japan, as a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow from 1996 to 1998 and the Chalmers University of Technology and Gothenburg University, Göteborg, Sweden, as a Postdoctoral Research Associate during the period from 1998 to 2000. After spending about two years at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India, he has moved to his present affiliation at the Department of Physics and Astrophysics, University of Delhi, New Delhi, India, in 2002, where he works as an Associate Professor. His research interests include theoretical high energy physics and quantum gravity. He is a string theorist and has researched broadly in topics such as nonperturbative geometric constructions, emergent gravity in a nonlinear gauge theory, non-BPS D-branes, (anti-) de sitter brane geometries, (anti-) de Sitter/CFT duality, black hole thermodynamics, wall crossings, and noncommutative geometry. He has authored a book entitled Non-Commutative Geometry: A Perspective on String and Field Theories (World Scientific, Singapore), which should be published in 2014.
