I am Pratik Nandy, a theoretical physicist from India. After graduating from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, in 2022, I moved to the Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP), Kyoto University, as a postdoctoral researcher in the Extreme Universe Collaboration (ExU). I joined iTHEMS in November 2023. My research interests include understanding quantum chaos in holography and condensed matter physics by using various quantum information theoretic quantities, such as entanglement and complexity. Recently, I have been working on the formulation of quantum chaos in dissipative systems and quantum field theories, especially systems with holographic duals, such as Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev (SYK) models and their double-scaled variations. I believe these systems can teach us important lessons about the quantum nature of gravity in de Sitter (dS) and Anti-de Sitter (AdS) space.

I am based at the SUURI-COOL, Kyoto University campus, where I am also affiliated with the YITP. I regularly visit the Wako campus and look forward to discussions with various experts from interdisciplinary environments. I will be happy to assist you if you plan to visit SUURI-COOL, Kyoto.
