Amit Kumar

I am a postdoc in the Astronomy and Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick, working with Prof. Danny Steeghs. My primary research interest lies in time-domain astronomy, e.g., Supernovae, Gamma-ray bursts, and Gravitational-wave candidates. During my PhD at the Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences (ARIES), India, I investigated a group of stripped-envelope SNe and their correlation with GRBs. Apart from this, I also worked in instrumentation in the photometric calibration and characterization of the 4Kx4K CCD Imager, a first-light axial port instrument for the 3.6m Devasthal Optical Telescope.

Currently, I am contributing to the Gravitational-wave Optical Transient Observer (GOTO) project, an excellent facility to investigate the GW optical counterparts.

For a complete list of my publications and research interests, you may visit my Google Scholar or ResearchGate pages.
