Speaker: Dr. Suchitra Sebastian

Dr. Suchitra Sebastian is a University lecturer in Physics at Cambridge University, a Royal Society University Research Fellow in Physics at the Cavendish Laboratory, and a fellow of King’s College Cambridge.

Suchitra's research interests are in the area of correlated electron systems, particularly in novel materials. Her research focuses on the search for emergent quantum phenomena in a variety of new materials under extreme conditions.

Dr Sebastian received a PhD in Applied Physics at Stanford University, USA in 2006, prior to which she completed an MBA at the Indian Institute of Management (Ahmedabad), India and a BSc in Physics at the Women's Christian College (Chennai), India. She was awarded the Lee Osheroff Richardson North American Science prize for her PhD work on frustrated quantum magnets. In 2012 she was awarded the Young Scientist Medal in magnetism by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics, and the Moseley Medal by the Institute of Physics for her discoveries in frustrated quantum magnets, heavy fermion systems, and high temperature superconductors.

Followed by the drinks and the networking session. All welcome.
