She is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge. She works in theoretical and computational astrophysics. Specifically, her current research focuses on the gas evolution and the rich physics of the intracluster medium (ICM) including thermal instability, transport processes, and black hole feedback using massively parallel, large-scale numerical codes and analytical tools.  

She was born and brought up in India. She finished her Masters in Physics and PhD in Astrophysics at Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India.
