Ronojoy Adhikari is a scientist at The Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai. His research focusses on two main areas, investigating the physics of complex and active fluids and designing algorithms that make machines mimic human intelligence.
Ronojoy is a recipient of the Faculty Research Award from Google Inc and of the DAE-SRC Outstanding Investigator Award from the Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India. He has been Hamied Visiting Lecturer at Cambridge University and Indo-US Science and Technology Fellow at Princeton University and New York University. Ronojoy earned a doctorate in physics from the Indian Institute of Science and then worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Edinburgh before joining The Institute of Mathematical Sciences, where he has been professor since 2012.
Ronojoy’s research has been covered in national and international media, including the BBC and Time Magazine. Ronojoy has a wide interest in music and in his free time is either playing sarodes badly or taking them apart to study their physics.
Currently, Ronojoy is on academic leave at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge and is a Fellow at King’s College, Cambridge.
