Work With Students

Doctorate Students Supervision:

11 students submitted Ph.D. Thesis (6 have already received permanent posts in various Institutes and others are in PDF stage).

7 more students are working under my supervision right now.



Other Teaching Duties: teaching on Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics around black holes to Students of SNBNCBS


Work With Postdocs

I have two postdocs (one at SNBNCBS and the other at ICSP)



III Service activities

Within ICRANet:

(a) We are organizing an workshop on Black Holes, Neutron Stars and Gamma Ray Bursts as a satellite meeting (Feb 15th-17th, 2008) just after the Observational Evidence for Black Holes in the Universe conference (Feb 10th -15th, 2008). These are done in collaboration with ICRAnet.

(b) Presented a seminar on the "Physics and Astrophysics of the Boundary Layer of a Black Hole: The Shocking Theory" at the University of Rome, Oct. 29th, 2007.

(c) Collaborated with Dr. S. Mondal, also visiting ICRA in July, 2006 and completed a few papers on for the MG11 meeting
