Sandip Trivedi (Hindi: संदीप त्रिवेदी) is an Indian theoretical physicist working at Tata Institute for Fundamental Research (TIFR) at Mumbai, India. He is well known for his contributions to string theory, in particular finding (along with Renata Kallosh, Andrei Linde, and Shamit Kachru) the first models of accelerated expansion of the universe in low energy supersymmetric string. His research areas include string theory, cosmology and particle physics. He is now member of program advisory board of International Center for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS). He is also the recipient of the Infosys Prize 2010 in the category of Physical Sciences.
He completed his master of science (Integrated) in physics from IIT Kanpur in 1985. He was awarded his PhD in 1990 from CalTech, Pasadena, USA. Later he went on to work as a post-doctoral research associate at IAS, Princeton untill 1992.
