Sabyasachi (Saby) Goswami is a new postdoc at the COSTAR group.
He is from India and got his bachelor degree in Physics from the University of Delhi. Afterwards, he moved to the University of Edinburgh, where he obtained his Master Degree in Theoretical Physics. The topic of his dissertation was Models of Galaxy formation. He obtained his PhD in Astrophysics from SISSA, Trieste, Italy, with a PhD thesis on 'On the effects of Initial Mass function on galactic chemical enrichment: the role of Pair Instability Supernovae'. His research focussed on how the later evolutionary stages of massive/very massive stars such as Pair Instability Supernovae affect the galactic chemical evolution. In general, his research interests lie at the interface of stellar and galaxy evolution and how from the physical properties we can infer the process of formation and evolution of galaxies using large data surveys.
Now at CENTRA, he will be working on dust in SN hosts using Integral Field Spectroscopy with the aim to investigate in detail the dust properties near the explosion site and far for a large database of galaxies and supernova types.
