The journey is the reward.

I am an astrophysics graduate student at Arizona State University in the School of Earth and Space Exploration. I have had a circuitous path in getting where I currently find myself and will no doubt continue to meander through life. I am originally from the lush verdant country of India where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Engineering. Since then I have received an MS in Astronomy from San Diego State University and worked at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, MD.

 My training is as an observational astronomer with specific interest in characterizing the atmospheres of sub-stellar objects including Exoplanets and Brown Dwarfs.
