I am gay and I am a space physicist.//


I am a PhD student at the Space Physics Laboratory, Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre of ISRO in Trivandrum, Kerala, India. I am studying the atmospheres of planets, especially Mars, its plasma environment and interaction with transient solar events. I am also interested in the propagation and evolution of solar energetic particles, which pose a major radiation threat in space. I believe in diversity, inclusiveness, and equal rights. I love the nature, gazing the night sky, and traveling.
