Rupam Mukherjee


Rupam received his M.Sc. in Physics from Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati in 2008 and PhD (2014) from Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan on transport and mechanical properties of percolation based composite systems. He is currently a postdoctoral research associate in Materials Science and Engineering at University of Tennessee, Knoxville. His research interest includes electronic and magnetic properties of strongly correlated electron systems. Outside the lab he enjoys traveling, swimming, playing football, table tennis and reading.
