Dr. Sourav Palit

Assistant Professor -II

My research focuses on high-energy astrophysics, encompassing two main areas of interest. Firstly, I engage in scientific inquiries related to the development and performance of missions in high-energy astrophysics. This involves conducting Monte Carlo simulations to assess satellite and instrument performance, sensitivity, background noise, atmospheric corrections, as well as studies in imaging and polarization. Secondly, I explore the impact of space radiation on Earth and other celestial bodies. I've developed a simulation using Monte Carlo methods and ion chemistry to model the effects of solar and high-energy transient events on the ionosphere and radio propagation. Leveraging Earth's atmosphere as a celestial detector adds a unique dimension to my research.
