I am a Nagaraj-Noll-Otellini Graduate Fellow working with Alex Filippenko on spectropolarimetry of astrophysical transients.

I graduated with a B.Sc. in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2018. At MIT, I worked with Josh Winn and Nevin Weinberg on the search for orbital decay in exoplanets.

I grew up in a little village on the eastern coast of India before moving to the UK, and then to the US for higher education. In my free time, I play and watch cricket, take photo-walks and write stories.
