I am Sandeep Chatterjee, currently a faculty at the Physical Sciences Department in the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Berhampur. Welcome to my homepage!

I am mainly working on the phenomenology of ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions- a class of high energy physics experiments where nuclei of different elements, particularly heavy ones like gold, lead etc are accelerated to almost the speed of light before colliding. As a result of the collision, a new phase of matter governed by the rules of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) is produced, offering the opportunity to explore the phase diagram of QCD thermodynamics and infer properties of the matter in the early universe and in the cores of neutron stars.
