I did my PhD in cosmology in the year 2015 and I am yet to take PhD scholars. My research area covers theoretical astrophysics and cosmology. I work on galaxy clustering with dark energy and dark matter both inside and outside general relativity by exploiting the recent observations. I also work on astrophysical and Big Bang Nucleosynthesis.

Undergraduate students from affiliated colleges with national level fellowships carry out their short term projects in Astronomy and Astrophysics under my guidance. I take 2 -3 MSc students every year for Masters Thesis in Astrophysics, General Relativity & Cosmology.

As a part of science dissemination, I write for public about the latest developments and discoveries in astronomy, both in mother language as well as in English.
