Somak Raychaudhury

Professor , Dean of Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences and Head of the Department

My research is in the general area of Astrophysics and Space Research. My interests lie in the study of the evolution of galaxies in groups and clusters, and on the supercluster filaments of the cosmic web. I use optical, X-ray, radio, infrared and ultraviolet observations, with observatories on ground and in Space, to understand how the transformations of galaxies are related to their local and global environment. I am part of an international collaboration for developing innovative machine learning algorithms for Astronomical data interpretation. I have published over 90 research papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals on these themes. I also play an active role in presenting Astronomy to the public, in particular to school students and their teachers.
