I am a Professor of Physics in the Department of Theoretical Physics at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai. Currently I am also the Dean, Graduate Studies at the TIFR Deemed University.

My Research is in Particle Physics / High Energy Physics, which aims to understand fundamental interactions of elementary particles. In particular, I work on

  • Neutrinos: Oscillation phenomenology, Supernova neutrinos, Astroparticle physics
  • Collider Physics: Heavy quarks, Charge-Parity violation, Physics beyond the Standard Model

My regular physics discussions are with the Phenomenology@TIFR group. I am also involved in the India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO), a mega-science project that will study neutrinos produced in the Earth's atmosphere.

Many of the recent advances in fundamental science can be understood and appreciated by anyone. I am involved in giving many popular science talks (mostly in English) , and writing popular science articles (mostly in Marathi).
