Condensed Matter Theory --- the study of coherence and correlations in many-particle systems.
Primary research themes:
Postdocs interested in working on any of these topics: please contact me by email.
My research group currently focuses on non-equilibrium phenomena in quantum systems.
Current members (Autumn 2013) are:
Event in Dresden MPI-PKS, three weeks in August 2013:
Seminar & Workshop: Quantum Many-Body Systems Out of Equilibrium
Most of my papers are available as preprints on `cond-mat' at www.arxiv.org.
Also: one q-bio preprint

Employment trajectory & biographical information
Since October 2006, I am a research scientist at the Max-Planck Institute for the Physics
of Complex Systems
(MPI-PKS) in Dresden, Germany.
I am associated with the Condensed Matter Department within MPI-PKS.
Previously, I held a ``Distinguished PKS postdoctoral fellow'' position; one of three such positions at the MPI-PKS.
My first postdoctoral appointment (Nov 2003 -- Sep 2006) was in Utrecht university, the Netherlands, working with Henk Stoof's group, at the Institute for Theoretical Physics,
I did my Ph.D. at the Physics Department in Rutgers University, New Jersey. I was at Rutgers from Fall 1997 till September 2003. I worked with the Rutgers quantum condensed matter group and my PhD advisor was Andrei E Ruckenstein.
I am a citizen of Bangladesh, where I was born, and where I did my undergraduate physics degree.
