Dr. Debarghya Banerjee studied Physical Sciences at the Indian Institute of Science(IISc), Bangalore, India. He received his doctorate in physics from there in March 2015. His doctoral research under the supervision of Prof. Rahul Pandit was on studying the statistical properties of turbulence in fluids and plasmas using nu-merical simulations. On completion of the doctoral thesis he moved to the Lorentz Institute for Theoretical Physics, Leiden, Netherlands where he worked as a postdoctoral researcher under Prof. Vincenzo Vitelli. The work there was focused on studying the hydrodynamics of active materials. Since April 2018 he is working as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Dr. Michael Wilczek at the MPIDS studying turbulent flows and active matter.
