A Little About Me


Hi everyone! Welcome to my ever incomplete homepage.
I am currently working as a Junior Research Fellow (JRF) at Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIA), Bangalore. I work with Dr Ravinder K  Banyal in observational Astrophysics. My research interests include the study of Exoplanets and their host star properties.
I completed my masters in physics from the University of Hyderabad (HCU), Hyderabad in 2018 with my thesis on the Bouncing Universe with Exotic Radiation under Prof. P.K Suresh at the University of Hyderabad.


My Research

From Theory to Reality

Star Formation
Crab Nebula

Star Formation

We still have only a very limited understanding of Star Formation. Answering questions about this is essential for understanding the mechanistic role it plays on other scientific processes, and for developing tools to further explore this research avenue with more sensitive measurements and improved data collection.

Planet formation

In an effort to gain a better understanding of Nebula Observation, I have recently begun to use a new technique to investigate the organization and functionality of the diverse parts of my experimental model. I am currently looking to expand this work by collaborating with other labs who have the facilities and prior experience to investigate this project further.
