Kaustubh is a Visiting Faculty at the School of Arts and Sciences.

She had joined the University in January 2019 and she teaches Physics, Mathematics and Programming in the School of Arts and Sciences.

Prior to this, she was teaching at the Post Graduate Department of Physics in Vijaya College, Bangalore University. 

She finished her PhD from the School of Physical Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University in 2013. She worked as a DS Kothari Postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Science (20142017).

She has extensively worked with automata models to understand simple neuronal dynamics in networks of neurons. In her recent work, she (along with her co-authors) reviewed and outlined some of the key results and findings in the field of generalised synchronisation, a fundamental phenomenon observed in nonlinear dynamics. 

She loves to travel and indulge in local cuisines and adventure activities. She practices Buddhism and enjoys reading spiritual books.
