Biography

I am an astrochemist and a radio/pulsar astronomer. I graduated with my Master’s in Chemistry and my Bachelor’s in Electrical and Electronics Engineering in 2020. Currently, I am employed at the National Centre for Radio Astrophysics (NCRA) in Pune, and working on building fully-automated data processing pipeline (in other words, I am writing lots of code) to search for pulsars and radio transients (such as Fast Radio Bursts a.k.a. FRBs). Most of this work is on my Github in the form of several open-source projects. I am also looking for a Ph.D. position in astrochemistry, so if you see something, say something ๐Ÿ˜!
