Research Interests

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