Mr Piyush Sharda


I am in my final year of undergraduate (hons.) studies, pursuing a double major in Physics and Electrical & Electronics Engineering at the Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani, India. Currently, I am working at RSAA (ANU) on testing star formation laws in high redshift galaxies. Prior to this appointment, I was worked on Chandra observations of N132D - an SNR in the LMC, at the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics. I am interested in high energy astrophyics, particularly supernovae. I am also interested in studying Black Holes and Exoplanets.

Research interests

Supernovae, Star Formation, High Redshift Universe
