Evan Pugh University Professor & Erwin W. Mueller Professor of Physics
Department of Physics, The Pennsylvania State University

Professor Jain is a condensed matter theorist with interests in the area of strongly interacting electronic systems in low dimensions. He developed the composite fermion theory of the fractional quantum Hall effect and unified the fractional and the integral quantum Hall effects. He received the Oliver E. Buckley Prize of the American Physical Society in 2002, along with Nicholas Read and Robert Willett.

Jain 교수는 저차원 강상관계 분야의 이론 고체 물리학자로 합성 페르미온(composite fermion)을 처음 제안하여 분수양자홀효과 (Fractional quantum Hall effects)와 정수양자홀효과(Integral quantum Hall effects)를 통합하는 이론 체계를 구축하였다. 이러한 업적을 인정하여 American Physical Society 에서는 2002년 고체 물리분야의 최고권위를 가지는 상인 Oliver E. Buckley Prize Jain 교수에게 수여하였다. Jain 교수는 현재 펜실베니아 주립대학에서 물리학부 교수로 재직 중이며, 2010년부터 2015년까지 고등과학원(KIAS)에서 KIAS Scholar로 활동하였다.
