Goutam is the principal investigator of SpIN group at IISER-Mohali. Goutam obtained his PhD degree from Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) in 2007. He attended Northwestern University and Argonne National Laboratories for postdoctoral research. Goutam joined IISER Mohali in May, 2012.

Goutam's principal research interest includes the experimental investigation of the topologically non-trivial systems like, topological insulators, topological superconductors, Weyl semimetals, Dirac semimetals etc. using scanning probe microscopy and transport spectroscopy at ultra-low temperatures and at high magnetic fields. Goutam also studies the long range interaction in artificially designed lattices to realize tunable topological and magnetic properties. Such works are interesting for device application in the areas of data storage and information processing through spintronics and magnonics.
