Ritika Sethi,

PhD. Student at
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Hey, I'm a first year Physics PhD. student at MIT (Astrophysics division). I grew up in New Delhi, India and graduated from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Berhampur with an Integrated Bachelor's and Master's in Science with a major in Physics and a minor in Chemistry. I am intrigued by the worlds outside of our Solar system, popularly known as 'exoplanets'. I study planetary interiors and atmospheres, and orbital dynamics, and demographics of explanatory systems. I'm also interested in stellar physics, particularly, gravitational interactions such as tides and resonances in binary systems, stellar activity, M-dwarfs, flares, and star spot evolution and their morphology.
