About Me

Welcome to my website! I am an observational cosmologist with a focus on analyzing data from multiple large surveys to constrain cosmological models. I will be starting as a Faculty of Arts & Sciences Fellow and a Dunlap Fellow at the University of Toronto from November 2023.

I was born and raised in Dhaka, Bangladesh and studied there up until I finished my high school. Afterwards, my family and I immigrated to New York, which has been home ever since. I obtained my Ph.D. and A.M. from the Department of Astronomy, Harvard University and my B.S. from the Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Rochester. Since the beginning of graduate school, I have been a member of the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument Collaboration where I have been leading efforts on the cross-correlation of Emission-Line Galaxies with Cosmic Microwave Background Lensing surveys. Besides research, I am passionate about mentoring and DEI initiatives to make astronomy a more inclusive field for everyone. Outside of astronomy, I enjoy reading, learning languages, board games and being out in nature.
