DR. KULDEEP VERMA
I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Technology (BHU), Varanasi. I obtained my bachelor degree in mathematics, physics and chemistry (2009) from University of Allahabad, Allahabad, and master degree in physics (2011) from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. I graduated with a PhD in physics (2016) from Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, India. I previously worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Aarhus University, Denmark and a Juan de la Cierva fellow at the Institute of Space Sciences (ICE-CSIC), Spain.
My research focuses on stellar astrophysics and Galactic archaeology. I utilise asteroseismology as a major tool to carry out my research. Furthermore, I employ stellar evolution and pulsation models, as well as advanced statistical and numerical methods including Bayesian analysis and machine learning in my research. I am member of a number of national and international organisations including International Astronomical Union (IAU), European Astronomical Society (EAS) and Astronomical Society of India (ASI). Moreover, I hold memberships in the NASA's Kepler and TESS asteroseismic science consortia, as well as in the ESA's PLATO consortium.
