  • Brief Profile

    Ashish Sharma joined the Department of Applied Science as an Assistant Professor in July 2021. Ashish received his PhD in Physics from Gran Sasso Science Institute, Italy, MSc in Theoretical Particle Physics from Thapar University and BSc in Natural Sciences from Himachal Pradesh University. Ashish’s research interest lies in Cosmology and Gravitational Wave Physics. Ashish is focused on how gravitational-wave (GW) detectors can be used to understand the cosmological phenomenon particularly the stochastic backgrounds from cosmic strings and vacuum quantum fluctuations, a superposition of sources too weak to detect individually. Currently, he is focused on stochastic cosmological GW background and data analysis techniques to detect primordial signals from the early universe with GW detectors. Apart from this, he is also interested in the theoretical and observational aspects of the cosmological phenomenon, non-GR polarisation modes, anisotropy in the background signals and black holes to understand the physics lies beyond current knowledge.
