My main focus so far has been the gravitational-wave lensing and the tests of general relativity. I am also interested in machine learning based techniques for gravitational waves data analysis. In my PhD, I had developed a pipeline for rapid strong lensing identification (LensID) and contributed analysis for strong lensing searches in the LVK data in its third observing run. Currently, I am investigating the wave-optics lensing of gravitational waves which would be probed by LISA and may allow us to constrain the dark matter distribution of the universe, do precision cosmology etc.
2013-2018: BS-MS Dual degree program at Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Kolkata (IISER-K)
2018-2023 : PhD in Strong lensing of gravitational waves and tests of general relativity at International Center for Theoretical Sciences, Tata Institute for Fundamental Research, Bangalore (ICTS-TIFR).
2020-2023: Member of LIGO India Scientific Collaboration.
Since 2020: Member of LIGO-Virgo-Kagra Collaboration.
Starting 2023, I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Astrophysical and Cosmological Relativity department at the AEI in Potsdam working with Miguel Zumalacarregui's group.
