Atmospheric studies : Low mass stars, Brown dwarfs, exoplanets. Also interested in stellar evolution, theoretical modeling of clouds, turbulent convection etc. and spectroscopy.
Currently, I am working on characterising M dwarf atmospheres. M dwarfs are extremely important targets to study, they are low mass stars that make up a silent majority ~70% of stars in the milky way galaxy, and are surrounded by terrestrial rocky planets. Studying their atmospheres have been a challenge for years as they are not hot enough like the sun or other FGK stars that have clear atomic lines in their spectra. They have many molecules dominating their atmospheres making it hard to apply classical stellar analysis. My PhD work will involve efficiently modeling these atmospheres to get a better understanding of the rocky worlds that surround them.
