Research Interests

I have been working in the field of observational cosmology and am especially interested in the constraints coming from structure growth and abundance of galaxy clusters. Being the largest gravitationally bound objects in the universe, galaxy clusters were thought to be dominated by gravity and considered a simpler type of object, hence its power in cosmological studies. To achieve precision cosmology, however, the environment and history of the physical processes that took place in clusters became important. Be it optical, X-ray, or radio, panchromatic observations provide clues to help us understand clusters. In this light, I have also dedicated a lot of my time bringing out the best quality of data from the AMiBA project, which studies the hot gas within galaxy clusters through the Sunyaez-Zel'dovich effect.
