Ujjwal Panda

Hey folx! I am Ujjwal Panda, an undergraduate from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani. I am looking for a PhD position in the field of astrochemistry for Fall 2020/2021. I also work with pulsars! I am primarily interested in looking for them in blind all-sky surveys, and am currently designing a fully-automated data processing pipeline for doing just that for the GMRT High Resolution Southern Sky Survey. My pipeline has already discovered two previously unknown pulsars, and we are hoping for more as I work on an updated version!

You can find me on Twitter and on GitHub as astrogewgaw! Follow me for my scicomm threads, my hot takes, pictures from my backyard (where me and my family grow all kinds of stuff), and my #AstroChemFacts! These are facts about interesting space molecules: their discoveries, reactions and weirdness! You can find all my scicomm threads on Twitter here.
