Professor Manisha Kulkarni did her masters from Shivaji University, Kolhapur, Maharashtra and her PhD in the field of Number Theory from The Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai. She worked on Galois Module Structure problems in Algebraic Number Theory for her thesis. After that she has been working in the field of Diophantine equations. She is also Principal Investigator of Department of Science and Technology sponsored project on the distribution of Galois groups and class groups. Her areas of interest include Diophantine equations, elliptic Curves, Galois groups and Class groups.
