Manibrata completed his PhD in Theoretical Physics in 2018 at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, India, where he worked with Prof. Amol Dighe and Dr. Basudeb Dasgupta as his mentors. As part of the N3AS network, he is currently based at Northwestern University, Evanston, with Prof. Andre de Gouvea as his local mentor.
His research interests include topics in neutrino and astroparticle physics. He has worked on the flavor evolution of dense neutrino streams in astrophysical environments, particularly a core-collapse supernova. For instance, his recent interests include studying fast flavor conversions of neutrinos emitted from a supernova, as well as binary neutron star mergers. Apart from that, he is also interested in dark matter model-building and phenomenology.
