Hey All! I am graduate student in Department of Physics and Astronomy@UPenn . I am working under Prof. Robyn Sanderson on various Galactic dynamics projects. I did my undergraduate from Mifa, University of Minnesota TC. I worked with Prof. Liliya Williams on studying nature of dark matter halos.
I am an international student from India, born and brought up in Delhi.
My Research interests:
My research interests are studying Basis function expansion methods of modeling galactic potentials in wake of complex potential varying interactions. Along with techniques of model selection such as use of action space of stellar streams and KLD based analysis. (Videos coming soon!)
My other interests include studying the galactic bar properties under new dark matter theories such as SiDM. Nature of implications of new DM halos.
A low order multipole expansion computed using a combination of two basis spherical harmonics and azimuthal harmonics for halo and bar respectively for the present day snapshots for FIRE-2 suite of cosmological simulation. (data Arora et al. 2021, in prep)
Power law pseudo phase-space density profiles of dark matter halos: fluke of physics?
