Research interests:

My research interests revolve around exploring the small-scale secondary anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) namely gravitational lensing and thermal/kinematic Sunyaev Zel'dovich (SZ) effects to constrain the standard model of cosmology and test the extensions as well as deviations from it.
