Prabir Rudra received his Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST), Shibpur, India in 2016, working on the gravitational collapse of stars and the dynamics of some dark energy models. Then he joined Asutosh College, Kolkata, India as an Assistant Professor of Mathematics, where he is serving till date. He is a visiting associate of the Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), Pune, India. His research interest includes gravitational collapse of stars, dynamics of dark energy models, modified gravity theories, astronomical data analysis, black holes, naked singularities, etc. Till date he has published over 40 research papers in reputed international journals and has collaborated with various national and international researchers. He has refereed for over a dozen of international journals. He is also a reviewer of the American Mathematical Society.
Dr. Bivudutta Mishra received his Ph.D. degree from Sambalpur University, Odisha, India in 2003. His main area of research is Cosmology and Relativity and currently working on the theoretical aspects of Dark Energy and Modified Theory of Gravity. He has already published more than 100 research papers in these areas of research in journals of national and international repute. He has presented several research papers and delivered invited talks in these areas in national and international conferences held in India and abroad. He has conducted several academic and scientific events in the department. He has become a member of the scientific advisory committee of national and international academic events. He has successfully completed two sponsored projects: one each from University Grants.
