I graduated with a B.S. in Astronomy (Honors) and a B.S. in Physics from The University of Texas at Austin in May 2023. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Astrophysics at Caltech. As an undergraduate, I pursued original research spanning the mass ladder of astronomical objects — stars, brown dwarfs and planets — to tackle research questions at the forefront of the field from an interdisciplinary perspective. My work led to the discovery and classification of variable stars, the development of novel planet-imaging techniques, the characterization of forming exoplanets, and the calculation of fundamental properties for the largest sample of ultracool dwarfs and planetary-mass companions. I have been recognized for my research efforts through numerous awards such as the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship, the Universities Space Research Association's Distinguished Undergraduate Award and the American Astronomical Society's Chambliss Astronomy Achievement Award. Born in Fremont, California, I moved to India when I was 4 and spent most of my childhood in the Garden City of India, Bangalore. Outside research, I enjoy playing the guitar, watching Formula 1, reading crime-thriller novels, gaming on my Playstation 5, and exploring the art of Japanese anime.
