Nalini Easwar's field of interest is experimental condensed matter physics. She is currently researching the experimental study of complex fluid systems such as granular materials, macromolecular solutions, colloids and granular materials.
After completing her Masters in Nuclear Physics from the University of Bombay, India, Easwar taught for several years at the undergraduate level in India before beginning graduate school at the University of Pittsburgh. After teaching at Amherst College and doing post doctoral research at the University of Massachusetts, she joined Smith in 1987. She has collaborations with the Polymer Science and Engineering department at the University of Massachusetts. Easwar has research funding from the NSF supported Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at the University of Massachusetts. The project on the study of force propagation in flowing granular media is in collaboration with the physics department at the university.
Easwar loves chocolate, music, long walks, hiking, Bollywood songs and dances and is a persevering student of West African dance.
