I completed my graduation and post-graduation from the University of Delhi in 2017. I joined ARIES in 2018 to pursue research in Astronomy and Astrophysics.
Research Interest and Description
My primary interest is in understanding the accretion mechanisms in magnetic cataclysmic variables. These interacting binary systems contain a Roche-lobe filling late-type secondary star that transfers material to a magnetic primary white dwarf (WD). The magnetic field of the WD plays a vital role in controlling the motion of the accretion flow within the effective magnetospheric radius. I use optical and X-ray data from ground-based and space-based observations to understand the accretion flow scenarios in these objects.
