Ankit joined King’s College London as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in 2021. Before King's, he was based in Brussels, Belgium for almost three years in a postdoctoral position at the Centre for Cosmology, Particle Physics and Phenomenology (CP3), UCLouvain. Prior to that, he spent six months at the Oskar Klein Centre, Stockholm University (Sweden) as a visiting researcher.

Ankit completed his undergraduate degree in High-Performance Computational Physics (Honours) and PhD in Theoretical Physics at the University of Adelaide, Australia.

He is an active member of the GAMBIT community who are well-known for performing global statistical fits of popular beyond-the-Standard-Model theories.

Thesis title
