Dr. Snehal entered Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics to conduct his Ph.D. research after earning his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Physics from University of Calcutta and Jadavpur University, respectively. In 2022, he received his Ph.D. from Homi Bhabha National Institute. During his doctoral studies, Dr. Mandal conducted research work in the field of magnetism in epitaxial thin films and heterostructures of perovskite oxide materials. Although his primary research areas are in the field of magnetism and superconductivity in thin films, over the time, he has developed interests in quantum computing experiments using superconducting qubits and plans to undertake a number of experiments using cavity and circuit QED structures. He enjoys playing table tennis, football and cricket, and often spends time either cycling, cooking or playing the harmonica.
