About Me

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing". These are the prodigious words of great and scientist Albert Einstein, the man who has revolutionized our understandings of the universe. These words are motivation for all and inspire me to try to push the boundary of human knowledge, physics excites me to do so. I am 5th and final year student of IISER Kolkata persuing BS-MS Duel degree program. My research interest comprises Gauge-Gravity Duality, Astroparticle Physics, Gravity. Several aspects of Cosmology and Astronomy especially reionization in the early universe interests me too. I am trying to study how Entanglement Entropy of small subsystems follows analogous property to that of first law of thermodynamics when the system is excited.

In my free time, I like to play football, discussions, and gossips with friends and listening to music. I am an avid lover of paintings and photography with an availability of time I do like to paint and enjoy taking photographs.
