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.

Here are links to my publications: from INSPIRE and from Google Scholar.
