Research Interests

My research focuses on designing, building, testing and deploying broadband low-frequency radio telescopes. My PhD experiment is called PRIZM (Probing Radio Intensity at high-Z from Marion) using which we aim to detect the signal from cosmic dawn, a period when the first stars ignited in the universe. My interests include RF electronics characterization, system integration, FPGA programming, calibration, data analysis etc.
