About me

The journey is the reward.


A selfie taken while working.

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, MD. Prior to this I received my Ph.D. from 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 beautiful 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 as a Research and Instrument Analyst.

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