    CV

    Career target:

    Stimulated by results and challenging problems. Interested in a position in the space industry - outlying scientific objectives, design and development of space missions, offering solutions to technical issues with a motivated team of diverse expertise where I can transfer my analytical skills. Effective approach in successfully solving problems. Would like to grow into overseeing projects, taking responsibilities preferably in an international environment.

     

    Work Experience
    2010 – 2014 Ph.D. Researcher in Astrophysics, Radboud University, Nijmegen. Gravitational wave astrophysics of compact Galactic binaries: Studied the usefulness of combining electromagnetic and gravitational wave (GW) data of compact astrophysical sources in understanding their physical nature. Implemented and modified a suite of C++ codes interfaced with Python to model the GW signals of the sources observable by (future) space-missions. Developed softwares in Python and Matlab to use the ‘Fisher- matrix’ and Monte Carlo methods to analyse the sources quantitatively.
    2003-2007 Resident Assistant for dormitory and apartment, Ithaca College, New York, USA. Responsible for overall supervision of a residence hall floor of 25-50 residents in the dormi- tory and 120-175 residents in the apartment. Main tasks were to foster the development of a community and to reinforce residential life rules. Other responsibilities included conflict mediation, administration, organising and program planning for the residents and weekly staff meetings.

    Education
    2008 – 2010 Masters in Astronomy, Leiden University, Leiden. Grade average: 7.5/10 Time variations in the Fine-structure constant: Developed programs to extract informa- tion from a large catalog and perform statistics on the data. Structural properties of galaxies from semi-analytic simulations: Wrote IDL programs and BASH scripts in selecting and classifying data from large simulations. Performed statis- tical studies to understand the physical principles driving the formation of the sources.
    2003 - 2007 Bachelor of Arts, Cum Laude, Ithaca College, New York, USA. Grade average: 3.6/4 (equivalent to 9/10) Degrees: Physics with Departmental Honors & Mathematics Minor degree: Humanities and Sciences Honors Program
    Worked with optical telescopes and acquired spectroscopic data using the NASA observing facility in Hawaii, USA. Adapted IDL codes to fit models to the data.
    2002 - 2003 Diploma, Linden School for girls, Lititz, Pennsylvania, USA.

    Skills & expertise:

    Organization, management and interpersonal skills: At Ithaca resolved issues and conflicts with diverse international students and responding to and managing crises/emergency response in residential areas, including facility and student emergencies. As a Teaching assistant during BSc and PhD organised problem sessions for students. At Nijmegen organised internal/external speakers at the weekly departmental meetings.

    Data analysis & Interpretation: At Ithaca and Leiden worked extensively with data and large simulated catalogues. Analysed spectroscopic data on asteroids to infer their chemical composition and of planet- forming stars to infer their structure. Also worked with huge databases of simulations to extract the information tailored to infer the physical processes in the sources.

    Physical Modelling: From BSc till PhD done several theoretical modelling. At Ithaca adapted IDL codes to model the chemical composition of asteroids and modelled multi-wavelength spectral data of stars. At Nijmegen implemented and adapted models in C++ to compute the expected observable signals from binary sources in orbit. Developed mathematical model to compute the effect of tides on the so-called compact stars which would have implications in their signals.

    Scientific programming: At Ithaca and Nijmegen developed codes in several programming languages: Python, IDL, C++, Matlab, Mathematica. Experienced in integrating, adapting and modifying public softwares while using them for my research.

    Oral & written communication in an international environment: Written scientific papers (with four first-author scientific papers and five co-authored pa- pers) in peer-reviewed international journals. During my BSc, MSc and PhD given con- tributed and invited talks at (inter)national conference and universities. Since my high school I have studied and worked abroad in the USA and in the Netherlands. At Ithaca College worked in a team of resident assistants with international students. MSc and PhD were done in a very international environment with collaboration with physicists from various backgrounds and cultures.

    Teaching &Outreach: Routinely carried out teaching sessions in the Astrophysics Department in Nijmegen for four MSc courses BSc course. Led problem sessions and graded homework. Volunteered at the Local Observatory in Nijmegen with open nights for public and I have also presented my research topic to incoming bachelor students in the Astrophysics Department.

    Volunteering: At the wake of the recent Earthquake in Nepal (April-May 2015), I volunteered a medical group in managing crowd and distribution of relief materials in several villages of Sind- hupalchowk district. Within a week, I fundraised ¤1,000 from personal network to help communities in suburban Kathmandu to rebuild their homes.

    Nepali (Native), English (Fluent), Dutch (A2) - aim to be fluent, Hindi (Fluent), Urdu (Intermediate)

    Interests: Hiking in the Himalayas: twice Gosaikunda (8 days, 5 days), Annapurna Circuit (2 weeks), Annapurna Base Camp (10 days), Manaslu (17 days) with future plans for Dolpo and Everest base camp. Playing tennis and photography.
