I'm a postdoctoral fellow at Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Bangalore, India. Previously, I was a doctoral candidate at SRON Netherlands Space Research Institue and IMAPP, Radboud University, the Netherlands.


Research Summary

I am an observational astrophysicist working in time domain astronomy. My research interests primarily focus on the host studies and follow-up of fast X-ray transients in the optical wavelength. I have also worked on the electromagnetic follow-up of gravitational waves using Gaia. Currently I work on the optical follow-up of transients with the GROWTH-India telescope and Indian Astronomical Observatory.
