Vikram Dwarkadas's Home Page

Hello, and welcome to my NEW home page (still under construction so some of the links may not work). I am a Research Scientist at the ASCI Flash Center, at the Univ of Chicago. Before this I was a Research Scientist at the Bartol Research Institute at the Univ of Delaware . And prior to that I was at the Research Center for Theoretical Astrophysics, in the School of Physics at the Univ of Sydney, working with Dr. Lewis Ball.

I had organized a workshop at the RCfTA on Supernova Remnants, Pulsars and the ISM . The proceedings of the workshop are available here.

    Some personal stuff

    Here's a link to some photos of us that my beautiful wife Noella has put on the web. If you're really interested, check back in a few weeks, and we may have some more.
