Current Graduate Students


Kishore Chandra Patra



I am a second year graduate student working with Alex Filippenko on spectropolarimetry of supernovae.

I graduated with a B.Sc. in Physics from 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, at 16, to study for the International Baccalaureate Diploma. In my free time, I play and/or watch cricket and badminton, take photo-walks and write stories.
