I'm an Engineering Physics junior at Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay
The vast variety of popular science material on astronomy inspired me since childhood. I wanted to be an 'astrophysicist' before I really understood what it means. I brushed serious strokes towards the subject when I was blessed with the opportunity to represent India twice at the International Astronomy Olympiads in 2012 and 2013, where I bagged silver medals.
And then I was a part of two research nurture camps which gave me a flavor of research in the big wide world. That strengthened my childhood resolve. My current interests include Computational and High Energy Astrophysics, though I am highly malleable towards exploring other areas
My largest hobby is coding, and I have taken a recent interest and emphasis in Machine Learning. I often try to use it as a strength in my education towards computational physics.
Learning violin has always been a dream, and I have recently taken this up as seriously. I am one year into my training now.
I love to cook, travel and socialize. My mood is usually a superposition of psychopath, mad hatter, party animal and curious being and may collapse into any of these when you meet me.
