Professor Parthapratim Biswas

Full Professor


Professor Biswas was awarded B.Sc. (Honors in Physics) and the P.N. Sinha prize (University Gold Medal in Physics) in 1991 by the University of Burdwan (India), and M.Sc (Physics) from the same institution in 1993. After post graduation, he worked as a junior and senior research fellow (1995-1999), of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), at S. N. Bose National Center for Basic Sciences in Kolkata (India) and obtained his Ph.D. (January 2000) for working on electronic structure of random alloys and surfaces. Following his postdoctoral research, from 2000 to 2005, at Utrecht University (The Netherlands), the University of Nottingham (UK), Ohio University (USA), and the University of Leipzig (Germany), he joined the University of Southern Mississippi as Assistant Professor of Physics in 2006. His area of expertise is Theoretical condensed matter and Materials Physics, with an emphasis on structural and electronic properties of complex disordered materials and glasses.
