Arshi Ali


Greetings! I am Arshi Ali. I am a final year Masters student studying Physics at Savitribai Phule Pune University. My research interests revolve around understanding how supermassive black holes influence the formation and evolution of galaxies. In particular, I am interested in the study of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN), focusing on the dynamics of AGN, feeding and feedback mechanisms, inflows and outflows, and jet-ISM interaction.

I completed my Bachelor's degree in Physics from Fergusson College, Pune. During my time there, I was an active member of the Astro Club and had the opportunity to coordinate various activities. This included organizing national-level student seminars, conducting basic astronomy workshops, and setting up interesting exhibitions.

Currently, I am working on a research project under the supervision of Dr. Biny Sebastian. We are studying jet feedback in a unique galaxy called NGC5972, also known as a "Voorwerp" galaxy. I have been analyzing data from VLT MUSE as part of this project. I am also actively working with Dr. Anupreeta More at IUCAA, Pune for my Masters thesis, titled "Probing Cosmology: Gravitational Lensing and Precision with GW+EM Lensed Signal." We aim to employ gravitational lensing techniques to constrain the Hubble constant value. I have experience in programming languages like Python and Fortran, and I am familiar with astronomy software such as DS9, Qfitsview, GIST, pPXF, CASA, and TOPCAT.

Beyond academia, my hobbies are sketching, playing the keyboard, baking, and playing badminton. Feel free to look around and ask me anything you are curious about or if you want to work together on something.
