Biography

Chandra Mani Adhikari was born in a small village of Lamjung district of Nepal. After completing his high school in his hometown (Bharte), he moved to Pokhara city, where he completed his Bachelor's degree in Science with Physics major and Chemistry and Mathematics minors from Prithivi Narayan Campus, Pokhara of Tribhuvan University, Nepal in 2008. He received the merit-based scholarship while studying his Bachelor's degree. He then moved to the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu, and enrolled in the Central Department of Physics on the Kirtipur Campus of Tribhuvan University to pursue his Master's degree in physics. After completion of his coursework, he joined Professor Mookerjee's group in S. N. Bose National Center for Basic Sciences, Kolkata, India to complete his thesis work under the joint supervision of Professor Abhijit Mookerjee and Professor Narayan P. Adhikari. He received his Master's degree in Physics from Tribhuvan University in December 2012.
Chandra then moved to Rolla, USA, in August 2013, and enrolled at Missouri University of Science and Technology to continue his graduate studies in physics. He received his MS degree in Physics in May 2015 and his Ph.D. degree in Physics in December 2017 from Missouri University of Science and Technology. Chandra worked as a graduate teaching assistant at the Physics Department of Missouri University of Science and Technology and a Research Assistant with Professor Ulrich D. Jentschura. He won 'An Outstanding Graduate Teaching Assistant Award of the Year' in 2015 and 2016 for two consecutive years. Chandra won the Graduate Seminar Series' in 2015, third place of the Schearer Prize in 2016, and the Second place of the Schearer Prize in 2017. After completion of his Ph.D., he worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow with Professor Jentschura. He joined the Emeritus Group of Laser Spectroscopy hosted by Nobelarate Theodor W. Hänsch at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, Garching, Germany for about two months in early 2018 while he was a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Professor Jentschura's group.
On January 2019, Chandra came to the Math & Physics Department of the North Carolina Central University at Durham to work with Prof. Igor Bondarev as a Research Schalor. He is working on the nanostructured materials of reduced dimensionality.
