I am a PhD student at the Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research (CSCVR), University of Massachusetts (UMass) Dartmouth. I work on gravitational wave astronomy with Prof. Scott Field and Prof. Gaurav Khanna. I am a member of the recently formed UMass-University of Rhodes Island (URI) Gravity Research Consortium (U2GRC).
I did my integrated BS-MS in Physics from Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Kolkata. I had been an INSPIRE Scholar [supported by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India; from 2013-2018] throughout my undergraduate. My MS Thesis work with Prof. Koushik Dutta and Prof. Rajesh Kumble Nayak focused on testing astrophysical viability of gravitational theories beyond general relativity. I graduated in 2018 with the Best MS Thesis (Physics) award.
Prior to joining PhD at UMass, I was a student at the International Center for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS), Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) at Bengaluru, India. I worked with Prof. Parameswaran Ajith on testing the nature of binaries using gravitational waves.
My research focuses on the following aspects of Gravitational-Wave astronomy and beyond GR theories. I am a member of the LIGO-Virgo collaboration, LISA Consortium and Simulating Extreme Spacetimes (SXS) collaboration. For details of my research works, please navigate the following tabs.Learn more
