Gautam Saikia

Research interests: Cosmic Dust, Infrared Astronomy

Work summary: Gautam is working on exploring the origins of Cosmic Dust in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies and in the process, unraveling hitherto unknown facts and properties of different kinds of dust present all around us. He uses observational data from multi-wavelength observatories and carry out analysis with the help of computational techniques to study dust properties such as extinction, albedo, polarization, and so on.

Pranjupriya Goswami

Research interests: Spectral curvature and variability study in astrophysical Blazars

Work summary: Pranjupriya is currently working on the study of X-ray spectral curvatures in Blazars with NuSTAR observations and modelling of the spectral curvature as a result of diffusive processes. This is a probe to understand the particle distribution and the radiative mechanism within the jet.
