I am currently working as a Post-Docotral Fellow at the Indian Institute Technology, Gandhinagar, India. My research interest encompasses various aspects of gravitation theory broadly black holes and gravitational waves. I am currently working on projects related to black hole perturbation techniques, specifically, extreme mass-ratio inspirals (EMRIs) and tidal effects. My recent works during PhD provide an understanding of gravitational memory effect emerging near the horizon of black holes and its connection with asymptotic symmetries. I am also exploring the possibilities to have observational signatures of such symmetries.
