I am a Fourth year PhD student in Space Sciences and Engineering, jointly advised by Prof. Michael Liemohn (Professor, University of Michigan) and Prof. Daniel Welling (Assistant Professor, University of Texas at Arlington; Adjunct Research Scientist, University of Michigan). I am from an Aerospace background, and a long list of events and interests helped me into space physics.
My primary research interests are in understanding terrestrial magnetosphere dynamics and its feedback to/from the ionosphere, during extreme space weather events. I am also interested in studying and applying my models in simulating paleomagnetospheres and understanding the impact of atmospheric flux escape.
My primary social interests are in numismatics, military history, fine dining, cinema, video gameplay and memes. I am an admirer of Western classical music while being a lifelong student of Indian classical music (check out my YouTube channel!), being trained as an ardent Indian classical vocalist (Hindustani classical, Rabindrasangeet, Bengali folk).
