Abhay Ashtekar (born July 5 1949) is an Indian physicist. He is the Eberly Professor of Physics and the Director of the Institute for Gravitational Physics and Geometry at Pennsylvania State Universitymarker. As the creator of Ashtekar variables, he is one of the founders of loop quantum gravity and its subfield loop quantum cosmology. He has also written a number of descriptions of loop quantum gravity that are accessible to non-physicists. These may be found on the Semi-Popular Articles page of his website below.

Ashtekar completed his undergraduate education in Indiamarker. He then studied under Robert Geroch in the University of Chicago, receiving his Ph.D. in 1974 (thesis: "Asymptotic Structure of the Gravitational Field at Spatial Infinity").
