Of this year’s 21 Swarnajayanti Fellowships, three have gone to scientists from IISER Pune working in diverse disciplines. The fellowships will support Nag’s research on designing materials for light emitting diodes; work of mathematician Biswas on controlled diffusion, queuing theory and potential theory; and Nath’s research on ultra-cold atoms and quantum body physics.
