Research Focus
About Shreeya

Hi !! I am a stellar spectroscopist, currently focused on spectroscopy of the standard stellar candles (classical cepheids). I am curious about all kinds of chemistry and nucleosynthesis inside the stars. I collect stellar spectra from the telescopes, and then analyze it to understand their chemical composition, and the underlying processes that lead to this chemistry.

To balance all the excitement from stellar astronomy, I use my hobbies: drawing mandalas, knitting, cooking and running, as a relaxing therapy. I also enjoy traveling, and thanks to the nature of academia I get several opportunities to travel. I am very interested in science communication and outreach, to materialize this interest I started my YouTube channel to share information about astronomy in Marathi (my mother tongue, and one of the major languages of India).
