Welcome to my page :)

I am a 5th-year Ph.D. Candidate at West Virginia University. I work with Dr. Sarah Burke-Spolaor on Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) and other radio transients. I am also a part of the realfast collaboration at the Very Large Array (VLA). My research focuses on searching for fast radio transients in both time- and imaging-domain data, localizing, characterizing, and figuring out where they came from and what produces them. I use the radio frequency data from the Green Bank Telescope (GBT) and the VLA for my research.

You can see my publications here or on the Publications Tab on the top right.

I was born and brought up in a small southern Indian State called Kerala, where I did my schooling till 12th grade. Driven by my passion for Physics, I moved to a little town called Pondicherry, about 550 km from my hometown, to pursue a 5-year Integrated M.Sc in Physics. Pondicherry is a union territory of India and is a coastal town which was once a French colony. After my Master’s degree, I flew to West Virginia, USA, to study radio astronomy!

My family was supportive throughout every step of my life, and I consider myself lucky for that. I want to use my privilege to raise awareness among underprivileged people about the importance of education and financial independence, especially among women.
