Anita Mehta (born Calcutta) is an Indian physicist. She is a professor at S.N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences. Her current research is aimed at deciphering complexity in natural and artificial systems, with special emphasis on granular physics in the case of natural systems and on memory storage in artificial systems.
After finishing a B.Sc. in Physics from Presidency College, Calcutta, Mehta graduated from St Catherine’s College, Oxford University with an MA and a DPhil in Physics. She studied with Sam Edwards. She was a Rhodes Scholar, and won a Streeshakti Award. She has also worked as a consultant with IBM. She has held academic positions at institutions like University of Birmingham, University of Cambridge, and Cornell University.
