Astrophysicist working on calibration of Chandra X-ray observatory, NASA's flagship X-ray mission.
My research interest includes the growth and evolution of supermassive black holes, the formation and evolution of galaxies, and the hot X-ray emitting gas in galaxies and galaxy clusters.
I have extensive knowledge about handling observational data from a broad range of ground-based and space-based observatories. Specifically, I have experience in working with X-ray, ultraviolet, optical, infrared, and radio data. I am familiar with programming, and I write my own codes to perform a variety of complex tasks. I have strong background in physics and astrophysics, which allows me to interpret and place into context the observational data. I can formulate novel ideas and develop new concepts, and hence study the so-far unexplored areas of modern astrophysics. I am experienced and successful in writing funding and observing proposals. I am capable of leading a team and I can also work efficiently as a member of a team.
