- I graduated with a PhD in Physics from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, India.
This is my PhD Thesis; all files related to the thesis, its synopsis, and defence, are available in this repository. Here is a jargon-less summary: Digging deep into cosmic explosions.
- Then I did a short postdoctoral research stint at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, Hannover, Deutschland (Germany).
- I write on matters related to scientific curiosity.
- I strongly support the practice of open research, and specifically the ASCL project.
