We are happy and proud to share the news of our faculty member Dr. Riddhipratim Basu being awarded the INSA Medal for Young Scientists (Mathematics) for 2020.

Dr. Riddhipratim Basu is a part of ICTS’s Mathematics group and works on different aspects of probability theory including stochastic growth models, interacting particle systems, random matrices and random graphs and large deviations. Much of his research is inspired by questions in statistical physics and his works often aim to provide rigorous proofs of predictions made in the physics literature. Currently, one of his main research interests is to understand the conjectured universal behaviour in models of planar random growth such as first and last passage percolation.
