Prof. Bindiya Arora
Prof. Bindiya Arora completed her Ph.D. degree in 2008 with Dr. Marianna Safronova. During her Ph.D. she worked on the modeling of atomic systems for atomic clocks and quantum computation. After completion of her Ph.D. she worked at Guru Nanak Dev University (GNDU), Punjab, India as a guest researcher for two years, and then at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Mohali, India as a scientist. Thereafter she joined the Department of Physics, GNDU as Assistant Professor.
Prof. Bindiya was recently awarded the Young Scientist Award by the Punjab Science Congress for her outstanding work in the field of Blackbody radiation shift calculations for optical clocks. She has also been awarded a three year funding from the Government of India to work on a project based on Quantum Information. She is working in collaboration with the National Physical Lab, New Delhi on the development of atomic and optical clocks, which serve as India’s primary time ad frequency standard. At present, she is mentoring a Ph.D. student and is actively involved in building a strong Atomic Physics group at Guru Nanak Dev University.
