Sagnik Bhattacharya

Hello, I am a third-year undergraduate student at IIT Kanpur (IITK), India, majoring in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Physics. My current research interests are in Quantum Computing, Quantum and Classical Information Theory, Quantum Optics and Photonics, and I aim to make my way into academia. My other academic interests include Signal and System Theory and Linguistics.

This is a summary of my academic career.

When I am not studying/exploring, I can be found listening to music, making up terrible puns, dabbling in History, and doodling. And also reading, which I tend to do a lot of (mostly science fiction, and fantasy). If you want to talk about any of these things, you are welcome to get in touch with me.

  • I blog sporadically at the un-catchily named Non-Quantum Uncertainty Blog. Bouquets/brickbats welcome!

  • I am one of the leaders of Science Coffee House in college, where I enjoy giving and attending fellow students’ talks on random scientific topics. Check out some of the talks here.

  • I love listening to music, especially Indian Classical Music and Sufi. I also play the Tabla (an Indian musical instrument).
