1992 - B.Tech - Mechanical Engineering Associate Professor, Center for Condensed Matter Theory @ Indian Institute of Science
Prof. Vijay B. Shenoy obtained his B.Tech from IIT Madras in 1992. He went on to obtain his M. S. from Georgia Tech (1994) and Ph.D. from Brown University (1998). Following a short stint at Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, he has been at the Indian Institute of Science since 2002.
Prof. Vijay B. Shenoy works in the Centre for Condensed Matter Theory in the Department Of Physics at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.
Prof. Shenoy’s research interests span a range of problems in quantum condensed matter physics focussing on the effects of correlations and topology. His theoretical work has potential to provide clues in developing superconductors and toplogical materials that work at ambient conditions, useful in the making of quantum computers. For his research Prof. Shenoy was awarded the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize for Science & Technology, the highest science award in India, in the year 2013, in the physical sciences category. He has been chosen for the following awards: Fellow INSA (2019), Fellow IAS(2012), Raja Ramanna Prize (2011),
NASI-Scopus Young Scientist Award (2009), INAE Young Engineer Award (2005) and INSA Medal for Young Scientist (2002).
For his accomplishments and contributions to the field of theoretical condensed matter physics, IIT Madras and its alumni are proud to confer this award upon Prof. Vijay B. Shenoy
