Ritaban Chatterjee

Ritaban Chatterjee is a post-doctoral associate working with Prof. Adam Myers on the observations of quasars and methods of selecting quasars from large observational surveys. Ritaban did his undergraduate studies in Presidency College, Calcutta, and Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India. He got his PhD from Boston University in 2009 working with Prof. Alan Marscher on multi-wavelength variability of active galactic nuclei. Before coming to the University of Wyoming, he was a post-doc at Yale University working with the Fermi/SMARTS group on optical-IR monitoring of gamma-ray-bright blazars detected by the Fermi Gamma Ray Space Telescope, and modeling of optical-IR flux variation of X-ray binaries. Ritaban's general expertise is on time variability of astronomical sources and physics of accreting (super-massive and stellar-mass) black hole systems such as quasars and X-ray binaries
