Ashiwini joined in June 2021. His research experience covers frustrated magnetism, quantum spin-liquids, superconductors, and thermoelectrics. He is particularly interested in materials with emergent properties due to the interplay of magnetism, electronic correlation, and low dimensions. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling, cooking, badminton, volleyball, and occasionally tennis.
