Anita Gemmy Francis pursuing Ph.D.

Education :

  • B. Sc in Physics from St. Stephen's College, Delhi (2014-2017) 

  • M. Sc in Physics from St. Xavier's College, Kolkata (2017-2019)


Research Interest :

I am interested in probing the Topological and Magnetic properties of various materials using Density Functional Theory. Novel materials which show exotic phases of matter are considered and we try to explain the microscopic origin of such phases and accompanying phase transitions from first principles.
