"We are made of star stuff!"-Carl Sagan

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambridge starting from May 2020 with Chris Reynolds. I am also a College Research Associate (CRA) at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge.

I was a PhD student in Astrophysics at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. I have worked with Prateek Sharma on thermal instability in the intracluster medium as well as gas evolution in the circumgalactic medium. Check this Research section for the recent results.

I sketch/paint, read a lot and hike when I am not working.

Office at IoA: Hoyle 25
