Research Highlight:

My research focuses on the gravitational collapse in semiclassical gravity framework. In our 2014 work, we have shown that quantum mechanical effect prevents formation of singularity in the final stage of collapse. I also analyze the information contained in the emitted radiation by collapsing objects as seen by different observers. Currently, I am studying black hole production through particle collisions in the early universe and in what ways this can change the early universe dynamics.

Apart from research, I am avid hiker and go on cross country road trips. I enjoy listening atmospheric black metal and follow cricket.
