प्रणाम! I'm a computational astrophysicist and a scientist in the gravitational-wave experiment LIGO. I'm also a research fellow on national security, with an active involvement in science education policy.My primary research focus is to understand the black holes in our universe, and test Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. I was part of the LIGO team which detected the first gravitational waves, and a co-recipient of the Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics, American Physical Society Distinguished Student Award and Vanderbilt University Prize. I currently hold the Senator Nunn Fellowship in national security and international relations, and serve as the Vice-President of the Student Government at Georgia Institute of Technology.
I often write about science in LiveMint, Huffington Post, The Wire, Swarajya, The Quint among other news outlets.
