In the third year I had to chose a major for my master's degree which I happily chose as Physics. The next three years involved more courses in specific areas of physics; ranging from Classical Mechanics to Quantum Field Theory. The variety of other courses was very similar to the courses you can find in any other international university. In the final year, I did my master thesis on the "Estimation of Accelerator Neutrino Flux", under the supervision of Dr. Satyajit Jena who is a leading researcher in the field of Experimental High Energy Particle and Nuclear Physics.

Ongoing Work in Ph.D.

Currently, I am a Ph.D. Researcher in the Institute for Astroparticle Physics at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. My work involves the analysis of Cosmic-ray energy and mass spectrum using the IceCube Neutrino Observatory in Antarctica. It is an exciting work where currently I am using Graph Neural Networks to find new parameters which can possibly help in composition analysis and also improve the previous analysis substantially. Focus on improving the overall analysis pipeline is also a major motivation.

Few of my other Research Experiences

May-August, 2018

I was a summer student selected in the J-PARC Summer Student Program, at the world famous KEK (High Energy Accelerator Research Organization), Japan which hosts the famous Belle Experiment. My project was to use the Plastic-scintillator (and MPPC) to measure cosmic muon rate and use the Argon-based scintillator detector to characterize slow and fast decay components of an alpha source. At the end of the program, I presented a talk about the work done during the project.

May-August, 2017

Under the supervision of Dr. Sanjib Agarwalla , I studied the field of Neutrino Physics and did qualitative analysis of experiments; conducted and ongoing experiments; in the area of Neutrino physics.
