Computational Relativistic Astrophysics
I employ evolution codes like BAM and SACRA to simulate the coalescence of binary neutron stars (BNS) and black hole neutron stars (BHNS) and investigate the effects of parameter variation on the merger properties as well as on gravitational waves. I am also interested in waveform modeling for such events (mostly focused on surrogate models) and in studying the systematics among various waveform models.
I obtained B.Tech+M.Tech degree from IIT-BHU, Varanasi, India in Engineering Physics in 2015. After that, I completed my PhD from Theoretical Physics Institute, Jena, Germany, in 2019, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Bernd Brügmann. During my PhD, I worked mostly at the interface of Numerical relativity and waveform modeling of BNS mergers.
