Pritam Ghosh did his undergraduate and masters from Ramakrishna Mission Vidyamandira, Belur Math, before moving to Rutgers University, Newark to complete his Ph.D. in 2014. He did his postdoctoral work at IISER Mohali as a SERB-NPDF fellow. He joined Ashoka university as a faculty member in 2019.
His research interests broadly lie in the area of Geometry and Topology. More specifically, he studies the large-scale geometry of finitely-generated infinite groups, an area of mathematics that has a strong following in the international community but grossly underrepresented in India. This subject area essentially uses various topological and geometric tools to study the underlying geometric properties of such groups. He is also interested in studying probabilistic properties of such groups (for example, Poisson boundary of certain finitely generated groups). Some topics he actively studies/work with are the following:
- Free groups and their automorphisms.
- Mapping class groups of surfaces.
- Hyperbolic and relatively-hyperbolic groups.
- Cubulated groups.
- Random walks on finitely generated groups.
