Krishnendu Sengupta is a professor of theoretical physics in Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science (IACS), Kolkata, India. Before joining IACS he was a research fellow in Harish Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad, and associate professor in Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Kolkata. He received his PhD from University of Maryland at College Park and MSc degree from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. His research interests include physics of strong correlations in ultracold atoms, quantum phase transitions, physics of graphene, topological insulators and Weyl semimetals, unconventional superconductivity, and quantum hall effect. In recent years, his main research focus has involved developing theoretical understanding of periodically driven closed quantum systems, with emphasis on phenomena such as topological properties of such driven states, dynamical transitions in these driven systems and possible routes to violation of Eigenstate Thermalization Hypothesis (ETH) in them. He is a recipient of the the SSB prize in 2012 and is a Fellow of all three Indian academies. He has served as a council member of Asia Pacific Centre for Theoretical Physics and was an adjunct Professor of Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (2012-2015). Currently, his research is supported by SERB via J.C. Bose National Fellowship (2022-2027).
