As a child, I remember being intrigued by the very sight of books in my school library. At that time, I could not effort to buy many books. But I used to explore my town library and find as many good books as I could. Probably, those were the early phases when I developed an interest in science. One of the most influential books I read, when I was a high school student, is A Brief History of Time. This had a huge impact on me and I started exploring more about the Einsteinian world of physics. This was the beginning of my journey towards gravitational wave science.
My interest in teaching led me to join the Einstein-First project and become a part of the OzGrav outreach team.
Currently, I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Western Australia developing ways for teaching Einsteinian physics to school students. I have done my Masters in Physics from Tezpur University, India.
In my free time, you will find me listening to rock music - particularly exploring prog albums. I like reading books: both fiction and non-fiction. I am also a passionate quizzer. My other hobbies include travelling and watching movies.
