I am a Physics enthusiast seeking opportunities to learn more. I have previously pursued short-term research projects in the fields of Radio Astronomy, Computational Chemistry and theoretical Condensed Matter Physics.

Research Interests

The focus of my most recent project was to use the Time Dependent Non-Equilibrium Green's Function and Landau Lifshitz Gilbert (TDNEGF + LLG) formulations to study the dynamics of antiferromagnetic textures. Before this, I have worked on graphene to find out universal features in its energy spectrum in the presence of localized point defects. Apart from these I am also involved in a citizen science project in Astronomy called RAD@home India to discover, classify and study exotic radio sources. This project is what occupies my free time.

Extracurricular interests

Apart from the above what I put my efforts in is NOT doing research or studying. Yes !! You just need to disconnect from the hustle and bustle sometimes to think clearly. That is where travel and music helps me.
