A Journey of Dedication and Resilience of an Astrophysicist

Piyali Chatterjee, a well-known name in the realm of astrophysics and solar physics, shares her heartfelt sentiments for the formidable women of the world on this auspicious occasion of International Women’s Day:

My interests lie in computational plasma astrophysics and solar physics. I spend time developing insightful modules to make physics-based simulations of the Solar plasma more realistic and comparable to observations. The combination of the math and intuition, back-of-the-envelope estimates of complex phenomena, the pleasure of seeing research problems gradually take shape from a fledgling idea is what brought me to solar physics. Most women in science experience patriarchal stumbling blocks during their journey just like in other professional domains. Nevertheless, if you take pleasure in and are good at what you do, then you will be unstoppable.
I congratulate team SCOPE and wish them all the best in their endeavours.
