Professor Daniel Eisensteinis an American cosmologist and academic working on cosmology and extragalactic astronomy. Dr. Eisenstein received his PhD from Harvard University in 1996 and then held postdoctoral positions at the Institute for Advanced Study and the University of Chicago. He was a faculty for 9 years at the University of Arizona before moving to his current position as a professor of astronomy at Harvard University in 2010. Currently, he is the Director of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III, which includes a major large-scale structure known as the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey, as well as surveys of the stellar population of the Milky Way galaxy and a search for extra-solar planets.
Additionally, he has also worked on gravitational lensing, surveys and analysis of white dwarf stars, and numerous other collaborative projects. He was a recipient of the Shaw prize in Astronomy in 2014 and was elected to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. An asteroid was also named in his honour(183287 Deisenstein).
He will be enlightening the early mathematics and the present state in the development of String Theory in concern of Black Holes via the vision of pure geometry.
Dr. Suchitra Sebastian is a Royal Society University Research Fellow in Physics at the Cavendish Laboratory, and a fellow of Kingâ€™s College. She received her MS and PhD in Applied Physics at Stanford University, USA in 2006. She moved on to the University of Cambridge as a Junior Research Fellow in Physics at Trinity College. In 2013, she was appointed a University Lecturer in Physics at Cambridge University. Suchitraâ€™s research interests are in correlated electron systems, particularly in novel materials. Her research focuses on the search for emergent quantum phenomena in a variety of new materials under extreme conditions.
He claims to have offered exact proofs that
She has received a number of awards, including Â the Lee Osheroff Richardson North American Science prize for her PhD work on frustrated quantum magnets, the Young Scientist Medal in magnetism awarded by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics, the Moseley Medal awarded by the Institute of Physics for her discoveries in frustrated quantum magnets, heavy fermion systems, and high temperature superconductors, and many others.
A.S. Kiran Kumar is an Indian space scientist and the chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation. He is credited with the development of key scientific objects aboard Chandrayaan-1 and Mangalyaan Space crafts. He earned his doctorate from Indian Institute of Science in 1975. His legacy spans across his contributions to the scientific world, specifically Indian space endeavours, and his efforts towards the dissemination of knowledge by way of articles and lectures. Kiran Kumar was involved from the very nascent stages of the Indian Space Program, from the early Bhaskara payload to newer programmes like Mangalyaan.
He designed the electro-optical image sensors used in Indiaâ€™s first remote sensing satellite, Bhaskara. Three of the five scientific instruments on the Chandrayaan-1 mission were designed by the group led by Kumar. He was honoured by the government in 2014 with the Padma Shri.
