Ritika Sethi,

Master's Student at the
Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Berhampur

I am a 5th-year Integrated BS-MS student at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Berhampur pursuing a major in Physical Sciences and a minor in Chemical Sciences. My ongoing work on tidal locking in eclipsing binaries and tidal spin-up in Hot Jupiter hosts is a mixture of stars and planets, with exoplanets being my biggest passion. Currently, I am analyzing the TESS and Kepler/K2 light curves to study spot modulations for estimating stellar rotation rates and understanding spot evolution and morphology. Additionally, I have worked on other topics, including Open Clusters, AGNs, and astroseismology. To get interdisciplinary exposure, I also engaged in projects across different fields, like biochemistry and neuroscience. For more details about my interests and contributions, read my CV
