               Myself, Dr. A.K. Srivastava, is working as an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Technology (BHU), India. Before joining IIT (BHU) on 1st January 2014, I worked as a Scientist at Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences (ARIES), Nainital during 1st January 2008 to 31st December 2013. I also worked as a PDRA at Armagh Observatory, United Kingdom in 2007 after completing my Ph.D. in 2006 from ITBHU. I am pursuing scientific research mainly related to the multi-wavelength observations and modeling of transient events (e.g., spicules, various jets), eruptive phenomena (e.g., solar flares and associated plasma processes), and MHD waves & Seismology in the Sun's atmosphere using recent space- and ground-based observations (e.g., from different instruments onboard Hinode, STEREO, SDO, IRIS, SST etc) as well as modeling. I also pursue the study of large-scale active region dynamics to understand the role of instabilities and flux-rope evolution in flare and CME eruptions, which is key to space weather predictions. Moreover, I also execute some research in stellar seismology. Recently, I aim to study the observations of various kinds of MHD waves in a variety of small/large-scale magnetic structures (e.g., BPs, networks, coronal loops, prominence, etc) to diagnose their local plasma conditions and study the MHD mode coupling in the solar atmosphere. I am also studying the solar jets and spicules, as well as modeling of these spectacular ejecta to understand their triggering mechanisms and their role in mass and energy transport in the solar atmosphere. The recent trends of the observations of MHD waves and their role in accelerating the transient phenomena, as well as diagnosing the solar atmosphere, are now being the frontiers in solar physics that are also the theme of my  research. I am involved in teaching and training of B.Tech Part One, IDD Engineering Physics, Ph.D. students, and various administrative tasks assigned by the institute.

Public Outreach

I have trained and skilled  in pursuing various public outreach activities. Organized various public outreach events especially during my work at

ARIES, for example :

(i) Summer School & Vacation Training Program during June 2011 by ARIES and NASI, Allahabad.

 

(ii) One day program for INSPIRE students : Talks and demonstrations ; 30 December 2011.

 

(iii) Summer School & Vacation Training Program during June 2012 by ARIES and NASI, Allahabad.

 

(iv) Venus Transit Event, 6 June 2012, ARIES, Nainital.

 

Inspite of these major programs, I actively participated and gave lectures in various public outreach events during 2008-2013 to the

students,academic visitor groups about basic science & technology, e.g., team of international journalists; various visiting groups related

to the governance of state, defense, and officials from different organizations; students groups, as well as general public. Actively worked

in the outreach events like COSMOS; Champawat National Science Day Events (2012); ATSOA etc.
