I am working as an Assistant Professor at the Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics, Pune. Previously I have worked in the Atomic Astrophysics Group at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics , University of Cambridge, UK. I have also held a prestegious research fellowship at Clare Hall, University of Cambridge and visiting positions at the High Altitude Observatory, National Centre for Atmospheric Research, USA and Kwasan and Hida Observatories, Kyoto University, Japan.
I am also an adjunct faculty member at the Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Bangalore.
My research mostly focuses on the structure formation, heating, stability, and dynamics of the upper solar atmosphere i.e., chromosphere, transition region and corona, including active regions, loops, prominences, and coronal mass ejections. I like to place important emphasis on linking the observational results with theoretical models. My observational work includes analysis and interpretation of imaging and spectroscopic data in the soft X-ray, UV, and visible regions.
