Bhavesh Rajpoot

I am a M.Sc. student at the Department of Physics and AstronomyUniversität Heidelberg, Germany, and a Research Assistant at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg. 

As a graduate student, my research interests continually evolve through my academic journey, and I find myself particularly enthusiastic about the ongoing developments in Galaxy Evolution, Exoplanet detection and characterisation, Astronomical Instrumentation, and Astronomical Machine Learning. For more details, please check out my Projects page!

I received my B.Sc. degree in Physics from Fergusson College (Autonomous), Pune, India. Through the college's Astro Club, I have volunteered and outreached Astronomy through various activities for college as well as school students. Talking about Astronomy and Scientific Thinking has been a recently discovered strength and therefore never leaves an opportunity to encourage young aspiring students to pursue this field.

Apart from academics, I counsel students about becoming an Astronomer/Astrophysicist, about various graduate study opportunities in the US and Europe, buying Telescopes (especially for the Indian subcontinent), and taking Astronomy and stargazing sessions.  For more information regarding this, please head to this page.

Along with Astronomy, I am an avid trekker and photographer, and love to cook!
