About Me

I am an astrophysics graduate student at School of Earth and Space Exploration, Arizona State University. I work with Dr. Sanchayeeta Borthakur on star formation in the outer disks galaxies. Our main focus is to understand how gas accretion from the circum-galactic medium fuels star formation in galaxies.

I attended Pondicherry University from where I received an M.S in Astronomy and Astrophysics. Before that I graduated with a B.S. in Physics from St. Xavier's College, Mumbai.

I am originally from Mumbai, India and grew up in the capital city of India, Delhi. I have been travelling and exploring India after graduating high school and also paving my way to becoming an astrophysicist from an amateur astronomer.
