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 Research page!

Talking about astronomy and scientific thinking has been a recently discovered strength, and therefore, I never leave an opportunity to encourage young aspiring students to pursue this field. I also share compiled lists of various sources on my Resources page, to help their pursuit of becoming an astronomer.

Under the Stargazer initiative, my team counsels students about becoming an astronomer/astrophysicist, about various graduate study opportunities in the US and Europe, and taking astronomy and stargazing sessions.  For more information regarding this, please head to this page.

Apart from this, I am an avid biker and photographer, and I love to cook!
