I am currently working as a Post-Docotral Fellow at IIT-Gandhinagar, India. My research interest encompasses various aspects of gravitation theory broadly black holes and gravitational waves. My recent studies focus on understanding the theoretical facets of gravitational memory effect near the horizon of black holes and its connection with asymptotic symmetries (AS) which were originally obtained at asymptotic null infinity for asymptotically flat spacetimes. Currently, I am exploring the possibilities to have observational signatures of such symmetries. I am also developing keen interest in the field of Extreme mass ratio inspirals (EMRIs) and tidal heating.
