Atanu Chatterjee is a graduate student and a researcher in the Department of Civil and Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India where he studies Mathematics and Networks. As an undergraduate student, he studied Mechanical Engineering where he was introduced to Thermodynamics. It was during this time that he started to understand nature in terms of the Laws of Thermodynamics. Soon, it became evident that in order to get a bigger, clearer picture he had to evolve out of the domains of the Newtonian paradigm and focus in areas of complexity science. This motivated him immensely as an undergraduate student. Soon he started writing papers and eventually, began publishing them in International Journals. He is a member of the American Physical Society.
His areas of interest include: Complex Networks, Thermodynamics, Evolutionary Biology and Classical Physics.
