Shantanu received a dual degree in Physics (B.S. and M.S.) from Indian Institute of Technology (Kharagpur) in 2007 and in the same year joined University of Rochester as a graduate student. He is currently working as a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. J.H. Eberly on subjects including quantum measurements, dynamics of strongly coupled qubit-oscillator systems, open quantum systems, entanglement and manifestations of quantum coherence, and applications of the above in the superconducting qubits regime.
