Professor Smitha Vishveshwara received her bachelor's degree in physics magna cum laude from Cornell University in 1996, and was supervised in undergraduate research by Carl Franck and David Mermin.  She completed her Ph.D in theoretical physics from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 2002 under the guidance of Matthew Fisher. Her graduate research includes the studies of localization physics in superconductors[1], Luttinger liquids, and quantum entanglement in carbon nanotubes[2].  She served as a postdoctoral research associate with Paul Goldbart and Tony Leggett from 2002 to 2005, working on tunneling and fractional statistics in quantum Hall systems[3], Aharonov-Bohm effects in carbon nanotubes[4], entanglement in spin chairs[5] and critical dynamics in charged superconductors[6]. She joined the department as an assistant professor in August 2005.
