I am a researcher in astrophysics, and I also enjoy doing web-development and "real" programming (nope, not just numerical coding :). In this website, you will find information on my research, and also various online tools and software I made, which are mainly related to astronomy.
At present, I am a postdoctoral researcher at The Ohio State University (OSU), USA, and currently, I hold CCAPP postdoctoral fellowship. Earlier, until 2019, I was a postdoctoral researcher at The Kavli Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics (KIAA), Peking University, China. I received my Ph.D. in Physics and Astronomy from Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences (ARIES), India. Broadly my interests are in time-domain astronomy, supernova distance scale, and various observational techniques including photometry and spectroscopy.
My research focuses on studying extreme and unusual types of supernova explosions. I am particularly interested in bridging the gap in understanding of these exotic events as they are difficult to explain based on our present knowledge of supernovae. In general, I am interested in a better understanding of supernovae explosions by obtaining high-quality observations and performing deep analysis to identify their subtle characteristic. I am also interested in using supernovae as cosmic distance scales, studying their interactions with circumstellar materials, and also their contribution in the formation of interstellar dust.
Among the various research projects and collaborations, I am associated with, the most notable is ASAS-SN, with which I have been working closely during my postdoc period. ASAS-SN stands for "All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae", which is one of the most successful survey for transients making some of the very important discoveries. I am also associated with NUTS (NOT Unbiased Transient Survey) collaboration, whose main objective is to obtain long-term follow-up observations of supernovae and other extragalactic transients.
