Hi there. Welcome to my place. I am Dr. Narendra Nath Patra, an Assistant Professor at the Department of Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Engineering, IIT Indore, working in Astronomy and Astrophysics. I am an observational astrophysicist. My research revolves around investigating galaxy formation and evolution processes using observations of nearby galaxies. I observe nearby galaxies with telescopes across the globe and try to understand the fundamental processes that regulate galaxy formation and evolution. These observations, assisted with numerical modeling, provide tight constraints on the theoretical frameworks of the cosmological model of galaxy formation.
Along with observations, I am also interested in radio astronomy, instrumentation, and software development. I am greatly involved (along with others at DAASE) in building the first radio observatory on any IIT campus, the IIT Indore Radio Interferometer (IIRI).
Science research apart, I also venture out doing science outreach, music, traveling, etc. If you find any of these interesting to talk about, please drop by IITI sometime. I promise you a good coffee and probably not so hard time:)
