Tathagat Tulsi Profile ,Wikipedia | IIT youngest professor | Dr Tathagat Tulsi, 22, becomes Professor Tulsi at IIT Bombay

Tathagat Tulsi Wiki:
Tathagat Avatar Tulsi (born September 9, 1987 in Patna, India) is a scientist (a physicist) but is most well known as a child prodigy and holder of a Guinness World Record. He completed high school at the age of nine, earned a B.Sc. at the age of ten and a M.Sc. at the age of twelve. In August 2009, he got his Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Science at the age of 21. His Ph.D. thesis on "Generalizations of the Quantum Search Algorithm" is 33-pages long. He has the special distinction of being one of the world's youngest scientists. At the age of 17, he co-authored a research manuscript ("A New Algorithm for Fixed-point Quantum Search") with Lov Grover, the inventor of a quantum search algorithm that goes by his name.

Tulsi is listed as one of the most gifted Asian youngsters by TIME magazine, mentioned as "Superteen" by SCIENCE, "Physics Prodigy" by The TIMES, "Master Mind" by The WEEK and listed by OUTLOOK as one of the smartest Indian youngsters. Tathagat Avatar Tulsi participated in the Stock Exchange of Visions project of Fabrica, Benetton's research centre in 2007. He was invited by Luciano Benetton for a dinner in honor of Al Gore on Jun. 14, 2007 in Milano, Italy. Tathagat's story was showcased by National Geographic Channel in the program My Brilliant Brain. The episode named "India's Geniuses" was aired on 13 Dec. 07 and was hosted by Bollywood actress Konkona Sen Sharma.

Dr Tathagat Tulsi, 22, becomes Professor Tulsi at IIT Bombay:

He completed high school at the age of 9, had a B.Sc at 10, an M.Sc in Physics at 12, and a PhD in Quantum Computing from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, at 21. In 2003, Time named him among the world’s seven most gifted youngsters. Now, at age 22, Patna-born prodigy Tathagat Avtar Tulsi has become possibly the youngest assistant professor at IIT.
Tulsi will teach Physics at IIT Bombay from July 19, having chosen the institute over Waterloo University, Canada, and the Indian Institute of Science Education & Research (IISER), Bhopal, both of which had offered him jobs.
“I turned down Waterloo despite an impressive pay package because I do not want to go abroad now,” Tulsi told The Indian Express over the phone from Patna. “My dream is to set up a lab focused on quantum computation in India, and one day help develop a largescale quantum computation-based supercomputer. IIT Bombay offers me these possibilities.”


Dr. Tulsi worked on quantum search algorithms for his Ph.D. Dr Tulsi at 21 is often claimed by news reporters as the youngest person in India to hold a doctorate. Some of his research publications are listed below (in chronological order of dispatch to the scientific magazines).
    * A new algorithm for fixed-point quantum search
    * Quantum computers can search rapidly by using almost any selective transformation, Avatar Tulsi, Physical Review A, 78, 022332.
    * Faster quantum walk algorithm for the two dimensional spatial search, Avatar Tulsi, Physical Review A, 78, 012310.
    * Adiabatic quantum computation with a one-dimensional projector Hamiltonian
    * General framework for quantum search algorithms
