Research

       My research interest mostly concerns high energy astrophysics experiments and data analysis.

The ALTO Project at Linnaeus University

     ALTO is a project aiming to build a Very-High-Energy gamma-ray observatory based on Water Cherenkov technology. In the project, I am responsible for Gamma/Hadron shower separation and Monte Carlo simulation monitoring. 

The H.E.S.S. Collaboration

     High Energy Stereoscopic System (HESS) is a major ground-based gamma-ray observatory based on Air Cherenkov Technique. Using the computational facility available through LNU-Astroparticle group, I have been producing Instrument Response Functions (IRFs) for a certain HESS run period. 

Previously I was a research scholar at TIFR - INO graduate school.
