Chintalpati Umashankar Shastry is a Post-Graduate Research Student under the supervision of Dr Andrea Rocco and Dr Marian Florescu, in the department of physics at the University of Surrey. He completed his undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology (Allahabad). Umashankar studied at University of Surrey to get Masters of Science in physics. His area of interest is in open quantum system and its application in quantum thermodynamics. Currently, he is working on quantum thermodynamical framework for understanding off-equilibrium properties of living systems. In addition to this project, he is undertaking another project where he is trying to apply the renormalisation group approach to open quantum system.
