me

Astronomy Lover
and Communicator

Trained as a Radio Astronomer with a Masters in Physics, I have been professionally into Science and Astronomy Communication for more than fifteen years now. I love to share the excitement, practicalities and challenges of Science and Astronomy with everyone. I also do a lot of public events. Feel free to contact me in this context.

If you wish to introduce me conventionally and professionally, see the bios below. Otherwise, my personal actions on this planet are often unconventional - driven by free thinking and humanism. People who see me in different roles, also describe me as an avid cook, organic gardener, thrifty traveller, millennial father etc.

Working while the stars shine

Yes, that is when you will find me most efficient. But in my day job, I am proudly part of one of India's most prolific public outreach programme in a research institute. My current work challenges involve communicating astronomy to the public / students and aiding amateur astronomers. In these pages (some are being edited), I am trying to collect together some of the things on my workbench right now.
