Athreya Shankar is a graduate student working with Murray Holland. Athreya started his PhD in August 2014, after earning a Bachelor of Technology in Engineering Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. His research interests include light-atom interactions and collective behavior in ensembles of quantum objects.
When not worrying about validity criteria for perturbation theories, Athreya likes to play cricket and watch movies. He occasionally pauses movies mid-way to resume worrying about said perturbation theories.
