Hi, I work in the Planetary Science group at TeamIndus Moon Mission and come from Physics/Astrophysics academia. I’m passionate about space, technology and science communication.
I have a Masters degree in Physics and research experience in Astrophysics. At TeamIndus, my work entails converting planetary science objectives for lunar missions to engineering requirements.
- X-ray data analysis of a binary star system using ISRO’s Astrosat data.
- Lunar landing sites abstract at LPSC 2019
My strength lies in communicating a broad range of science and technology subjects. Check out my work.
- The Space Perspective (Personal blog)
- The Planetary Society
- The Wire
- TeamIndus Moon Mission blog
- Moon Minute Monday (Personal project inspired by APOD)
I often speak at public events on various science and technology topics. Here’s some.
- Designing Science Missions for TeamIndus Foundation Younglings Program (2018)
- Exoplanets and Life in the Universe at Barcamp Bangalore (2019)
- Infinite Wonders, One Universe at Learning Circle (2015)
Look up and wonder, or we die.
I contribute to open source movements whenever possible, because the world needs to be an open, transparent and collaborative place. Find some of my openly licensed work below.
