Research

My research spans various aspects of high energy astrophysics, on topics including accretion around compact objects, emission mechanisms of high energy non-thermal X-rays from black hole coronae, the physics of particle energization in astrophysical plasmas, and the origin of coherent radio emission from sources like Pulsars and Fast Radio Bursts. I study them by performing kinetic plasma simulations (PIC), hydrodynamical fluid simulations, and also by directly observing the astronomical sources via satellite and ground-based telescopes. I am advised by Lorenzo Sironi and Brian D. Metzger.
