Subhasish Mandal

Assistant Professor

Condensed Matter Theory and Computation


Dr. Mandal obtained his Ph.D. from the Department of Physics at Michigan Technological University in 2012 and M. Sc. from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras in 2007.  He pursued his postdoctoral research in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Rutgers University . Prior to that, Dr. Mandal was a Yale-IBM postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Applied Physics at Yale University. 


Dr. Mandal's area of research is in the theoretical and computational aspect of quantum condensed matter physics. Through his research, which is based on the first-principles approaches, Dr. Mandal seeks to understand the behavior of electrons in many classes of advanced quantum materials like high-temperature superconductors, Mott insulators, topological insulators, and multi-ferroelectrics materials by predicting electronic, optical, and magnetic properties.  To capture the physics of a wide range of phenomena in quantum condensed matter, he uses various first-principles theories and computations ranging from GW approximation to the dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT). Dr. Mandal uses these quantum many-body approaches together with artificial intelligence for modeling and designing new correlated materials, with the aim to significantly accelerate the pace of materials discovery toward sustainable and quantum revolution.
