My methodology is rudimentary, it is a simple as having a conversation. I believe a student feels more engaged in the topic if they feel like they are having a constructive and meaningful conversation with the expert on the subject of matter, instead of listening like a tape recorder. I want the student to feel like they are already experts in the topic, even if they know nothing about it. The beauty lies in the constructive reasoning we apply, both the student and me, to reach a conclusion or to solve any problem. I want the student to enjoy studying these subjects and not to gulp them without understanding how mathematics, physics or astrophysics work in our day to day lives. If you decide to study with me, I will make sure you will fall in love with the these subject, and moreover, I will personally try to make you feel you still have an unquenchable thirst for curiosity and for how everything fits together.
I am an astrophysicist pursuing a Ph.D. in Gravitational Wave Data Analysis. I have had the chance to meet and help many students, from high school all the way to sophomore year at university. I don't feel like I actually teach, but instead, it is more like having a conversation about the topic, which I believe it facilitates the "student" to understand better.
My friends and colleagues have always told me that I have a talent to make people understand complicated topics and reasonings, therefore, based on this, I would like to test these skills on people whom I have never met.
Graduated in June 2020 with an M.Sci. in Astronomy and Physics with a final GPA of 20.9 and currently pursuing a Ph.D. program at the University of Glasgow in gravitational wave research data analysis within the Institute for Gravitational Research (IGR). Worked at the Lunar and Planetary Institute, Houston, TX, as a research intern (2018) and former research intern at Queen’s University, Belfast, ARC (Astrophysics Research Centre) program (2019).

The project involved applying basic programming skills to process orbital hyperspectral data from OMEGA and CRISM spectrometers to infer water and hydrated mineral abundances over Gale crater. I presented the results of the project in front of the LPI and NASA (Johnson Space Center) science staff for the 34th Summer Intern Conference.

Advised by Dr. Krishna Sayamanthula Prasad
The project involved carrying out measurements of solar coronal loop widths and identifying any ‘typical’ width that may be present in multithermal channels.
Academic Assistant May 2019 - June 2019 Astronomy Department, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK
