    Dr. Arijit Maitra has received Ph.D. from Westfälische Wilhelms Universität, Münster, Germany and carried out postdoctoral research at University of California-San Diego and SUNY-Stony Brook, USA. His focus of research is theoretical and computational modelling of microscopic dynamics in soft matter systems such as polymers and biological cells involving quantitative techniques such as molecular simulations (MD, Monte Carlo, ab-initio), and statistical physics. He is interested in problems that have relevance to materials and biomedical sciences, and his publications have appeared in Physical Review Letters, PNAS, Biophysical Journal, and Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics.
