I am studying the particles of the dark universe. I am very much interested in learning about what scintillation can tell me about neutral particles that exist and the ones that are still hypothetical. At the moment, I am working on understanding better what sort of neutrinos are around us and searching for the elusive Dark Matter. 

As an experimentalist my day-to-day work is about designing, building and operating particle physics detectors at various labs with the ultimate goal of discovering something new. 

I also like to develop (relatively smaller) detector systems for other applications.
