Hi there... First of all, welcome to my home page, and don't get scared by the logo at the top left. It is the neutral Hydrogen intensity distribution in the galaxy NGC 7331 (one of my favorites) at heliocentric velocities 784 km/s and 857 km/s (with a channel width of ~ 5.6 km/s), showing the classic signature of the galaxy rotation.

I am Narendra Nath Patra, an Assistant Professor at the Department of Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Engineering, IIT Indore, India, working in Astronomy and Astrophysics. My research interests include Radio Astronomy, Astronomical techniques, and related software development, Extragalactic astronomy, etc. Apart from this, I am also interested in science-outreach, music, travelling, etc. If you find any of these interesting to talk on, please drop by at IITI sometime. I promise you a good coffee and probably not so hard time :)
