Meet Our Physicists

Aditi Mitra

Aditi Mitra is a quantum condensed matter theorist at New York University. She works on a broad range of topics in driven quantum systems. These include transport in strongly correlated systems, Floquet topological systems, universality out of equilibrium, and nonequilibrium phase transitions. Her most recent work explores how non-abelian anyons can be introduced in an out of equilibrium setting.

Aditi Mitra obtained her B.Sc. in Physics from Presidency College, Calcutta, India (1993), her M.Sc. in Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India (1995) and her Ph.D. in Physics from Indiana University, Bloomington, USA (2002). After postdoctoral research at Columbia University, NY and the University of Toronto, she joined NYU-NY in September 2006. She has been visiting the Aspen Center for Physics regularly since 2004, becoming a member of the Center in 2019.
