Became a KVPY Fellow
I was awarded the prestigious Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) fellowship from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, in 2006.
I did my B. Sc. (Physics) from Fergusson College in Pune, in 2008, and my M. Sc. (Physics) from the Department of Physics, University of Pune, in 2010. I finished my Ph. D. in radio pulsar search and timing with Dr. B. C. Joshi at NCRA, Pune in January 2017. Currently, I am working as a post-doctoral fellow in time domain astropysics. My work involves searching for FRBs, the cosmological beacons which shine through for a very short period of time and can be detected by giant radio telescopes like the Arecibo Observatory or the Green Bank Observatory.
Here are my research interests. The list is not meant to be exhaustive. I am generally interested in transient radio stuff including RRATs, bursting magnetars, AXPs
