Recommondation
I have known Ms. Suchetana Mukhopadhyay for the last five years as a class instructor. In my interactions with Suchetana, I have been impressed by her sound knowledge of basic, inquisitive nature, clarity of thought, and expression. As a class instructor, during the course study, I was able to distinguish her from the rest of the students due to her prompt answer and regularly done assignment. She also had a good command in experiments and tries to explain every step performed. She has maintained a good academic career. I found her to be extremely passionate about research with a good communication and writing skill. I strongly recommend Ms. Suchetana Mukhopadhyay for the Ph.D. programme and every success of life.


Question 1
What is it about research as a career that interests you the most? In which subject area(s) would you like to pursue research? What led you to choose this area of research?

Response to Question 1
I am interested in pursuing research as it will give me the opportunity to involve myself deeply in a subject area that interests me and work with like-minded people who share the same interest. I am also drawn to the relative independence of an academic career and I believe a Ph.D. will provide me with the experience and skills to pursue it.

My research interests lie broadly in experimental Condensed Matter Physics and Nanotechnology. I am willing to do both experimental and computational research. I am interested in working on functional materials. This interest stems from reading about their applications in energy-efficient energy and data storage devices. I am also interested in Soft Matter Physics which I would like to understand and explore.

Question 2
Describe any project, or laboratory experiment, or research-oriented training programme that you have been involved in. Please highlight the aspects that you particularly enjoyed.

Response to Question 2
For my Masters thesis and subsequent project, I worked under Prof. Parongama Sen at Calcutta University and did a numerical analysis of a disordered discrete-time quantum walk that is non-Markovian in nature and found that it exhibits a non-universal scaling behaviour, and identified distinct phases with different scaling. I carried out all simulations using original Fortran code. After my M.Sc., I worked under Prof. Sen as a project student and extended this work, which culminated in an article titled- Persistent quantum walks: Dynamic phases and diverging timescales, that has since been published.

I particularly enjoyed the computational aspect of this research. I was able to test my programming skills in Fortran and taught myself LaTeX. I also enjoyed writing and reporting on a subject that was new to me by assimilating information from various sources.

Question 3
State the reasons on why you want to opt for JNCASR for your advanced research / academic studies.

Response to Question 3
I want to pursue a Ph.D. at JNCASR because of its active research tradition. In particular, the focus areas of research in the Chemistry and Physics of Materials Unit are directly relevant to my own research interests. I am deeply interested in the work of several faculty members of CPMU and would love an opportunity to learn more directly from them. I believe that working here as a Ph.D. student will benefit me a lot as it will help me to refine my interests into focused research objectives and allow me to gain the necessary expertise to work in this field in the future.

Declaration
I declare that all the information and entries of marks are correct to the best of my knowledge and belief. If admitted, I shall obey all the rules and regulations of the Centre.
