Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy
Professor Ramanathan is an experimental physicist working at the interface of quantum information processing and condensed matter physics. He has a B. Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, an M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, an S.M. in Technology and Policy and an Sc.D. in Nuclear Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Following postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School, Nottingham University and MIT, he spent a number of years at MIT as a Research Scientist. He joined Dartmouth College in August 2010.
