Agniva Ghosh

Hi! I'm Agniva and welcome to my personal space. I'm a Physics Grad student at University of Minnesota. Formerly I've done my bachelor and master studies from University of Calcutta and Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur in India respectively. I am from a small town called Konnagar, situated in the suburb area of the Calcutta metropolis in India. Other than physics I'm interested in reading books, capturing photos, cartography and watching football and movies.
