I am a third year PhD student interested in various aspects of high energy astrophysics. Particularly, my research interests are in understanding the physics of particle acceleration, accretion around compact objects, the emission mechanisms of high energy non-thermal X-rays from black hole coronae, and other coherent radio emission from sources like Pulsars and Fast Radio Bursts. I study them by performing kinetic plasma simulations, hydrodynamical fluid simulations, and also by directly observing these sources via satellite and ground based telescopes.
