Sayan Chakraborti

Welcome to my homepage.
My name is Sayan Chakraborti. I'm a Junior Fellow at the Society of Fellows of the Harvard University. My area of research involves, massive stars (more than eight times the mass of our Sun) which explode as Supernovae at the end of their lives. I study the populations that these stars come from and their effects on their environments. The photograph you see above, is that of the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) operated by TIFR. It is the largest radio telescope which can look at radio waves of about a metre in wavelength. I use it to study the shock waves that a Supernova produces while interacting with the matter around its parent star.
