My research interests are in various aspects of gravitational-wave astrophysics of compact binary mergers. In particular, I am interested in modeling the ringdown signal from binary black hole mergers, the inference of neutron star equation of state and understanding binary neutron star post-merger signal, and probing the expansionary history of the Universe using compact binary mergers. Recently, I have been working on the science case of various next generation ground-based detectors and the impact of various choices of detector designs on the science potential.

Here are links to my publications: from Inspire, and from the ADS database.


I am from India and completed my Integrated Masters in Physics from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee in 2017. I did my Masters thesis project with Dr. Eva Hackmann at University of Bremen. Following that, I joined Penn State for my PhD and worked with Prof. Bangalore Sathyaprakash. I finished by PhD in December 2022 and was employed as a postdoc at Penn State until April 2023. I joined the Albert Einstein Institute as a postdoc in May 2023.
