Biography

Mukesh Tiwari is currently working as an Associate Professor at DA-IICT. He joined the institute in 2009. Prior to this, he completed his M.Sc. in Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi and PhD from the University of New Mexico, working with Nitant Nenkre. His primary research interest is in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics and nonlinear dynamics. His current research directions are in impact propagation, absorption and dispersion in structured and amorphous granular materials, architectured granular systems for impact decimation and aspects of processes on networks with applications to social science. His earlier work explored quasi particle motion in classical and quantum mechanical systems to gain understanding of friction at microscopic scale, polaron transport etc.
