I am a theoretical physicist, specializing in quantum mechanics and cosmology. A lot of my work involves thinking about fundamental problems in quantum physics, and its broader impact in cosmology, gravity, and possible signatures in experiment. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Physics at Whitman College in charming Walla Walla, WA.
Before starting as a faculty, I was a postdoctoral Research Scholar in physics at Caltech and a Visiting Affiliate at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In addition to thinking about some of the most intriguing mysteries of the universe, I have a passion for teaching physics in the classroom and I have been an instructor for entire core physics curriculum at Caltech.
I hold a Ph.D. in Physics (2020) from Caltech, a Masters in Physics (2018) also from Caltech, before which I completed my Integrated Masters of Science in Physics (2015) at the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee.
I am also an amateur astronomer and astrophotographer who still hasn't gotten over the shimmering Milky Way. Outside of physics, I greatly enjoy traveling/roadtripping, particularly to National Parks and Forests, and indulging in Indian Classical Music.
