A scientist and professor, Dr. Sanjit Mitra has done considerable research in ‘Efficient analysis algorithms for Gravitational Waves and Cosmology’. His talk gives us an insight into the unexplored applications of gravitational waves- ideas we probably weren’t aware of!
Dr. Sanjit Mitra has completed his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Physics from University of Calcutta and received Ph.D. in Physics for his notable research in ‘Efficient analysis algorithms for Gravitational Waves & Cosmology’ from the University of Pune. His areas of interest include- Gravitational Waves, Cosmic Micro-wave background and Computational Astrophysics and Cosmology.
He has been presented with the NASA group Achievement Award for contribution to Planck Data Analysis and Early Release Compact Source Catalog thrice! He also is the recipient of the LIGO Thesis prize.
He currently works as an associate professor at Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), Pune.
