I am currently a Research Assistant Professor at CIERA, Northwestern University.
I am interested in how gravitational dynamics affects our Universe. For example, in star clusters thousands to millions of stars can interact with each other resulting in many exotic outcomes. On a much smaller length scale, gravitational dynamics in multi-planet systems can dramatically alter the orbital properties, as well as structural properties of planets via scattering, ejections, and physical collisions.
My research interests include formation and evolution of star clusters, dynamical formation of stellar exotica in clustered environments, formation and evolution of planetary systems, and signatures of past evolutionary history of planets on their current orbital and structural architectures.
Here is my cv if you are interested.
While I am not working, I love playing indian classical music on my sitar. I also love playing and watching cricket.
