« Vasundhara is extremely patient and understanding with her students. She will make sure that you really understand the subject, and will not stop trying till you're there. She has the ability to simplify complex topics into smaller understandable pieces, before you know you'll be comfortable with physics like never before! »

Post graduate in particle physics with more than 5 years of teaching experience

Methodology

I try to learn the strengths and weaknesses of each student and try to mould my lessons accordingly. I try to take the first 1-2 lessons slow, trying to build a rapport with the student to encourage discussions and deliberations on each topic that is taught. I encourage students to engage in self-exploration and inculcate the habit of asking questions so as to develop an inquisitive mind which is very important for early learners. I am very appreciative if students come prepared with a set of questions for the tutoring session which makes the process more organized. I have experience tutoring high school students and up. However, I will be happy to take in younger students.

Background

I have a masters degree in particle physics with an undergraduate degree in math and computer engineering. I have taught university and high school students as a TA and private tutor for more than 5 years. Currently, I am looking to work as a data scientist or data analyst.

Vasundhara's Resume

EDUCATION

Master in Science (MSc), Queen’s University, Kingston, ON
September 2017 – October 2020
Experimental particle astrophysics

Bachelor in Technology (B.Tech.), University of Delhi, Delhi, India
September 2011 – June 2015
Major in math and computer science, minor in electronics


EXPERIENCE

Research Assistant, Queen’s University, Kingston, ON
September 2017 – October 2020
• Part of the Majorana Collaboration, which is doing fundamental research in the field of experimental particle physics by operating the Majorana Demonstrator - arrays of germanium detectors sensitive to gamma rays
• Simulated the charge signals for a model germanium detector in C and creating fake data sets by adding real noise traces from the detector to simulated pulses
• Investigated the uncertainty in position prediction of the given detector by designing and implementing a chi-square based fitter which compares data signals and simulated signals and predicts the position of an “unknown” data pulse
• Predicted the uncertainty to as low as 1mm in some regions for a cylindrical detector with radius=33mm and height=51mm by using fake data sets

Teaching Assistant, Queen’s University, Kingston, ON
September 2017 – August 2020
• Led labs and tutorials for groups of 30-40 first year engineering and life science students on Electromagnetics, Kinematics, Waves and Vibrations, Optics etc.
• Mentored several undergraduate summer students working in the Majorana collaboration at Queen’s University
• Displayed skilled scientific communication and ability to explain difficult concepts with ease as a teaching assistant and private tutor

Research Student, Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Bengaluru, India
February 2015 – May 2015
• Part of a team of international scientists who were involved in understanding the internal structure of stars, specifically the sun
• Interpreted the image data set of the sun’s surface obtained from the Solar Dynamics Observatory, a NASA mission, using digital event processing to re-evaluate information like travel time of acoustic waves between two points below the surface of the sun

Visiting Student, Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics, Pune India
June 2014 – March 2017
• Created a macro in Matlab and python for classifying variable stars into seven different classes based on the shape of the light curves using Naïve bayes classifier, Tree classifier, Forest classifier, Support vector machine and artificial neural networks and compared the efficiencies of various techniques
• Compared the above results again using the same supervised learning techniques but by applying principal component analysis and validated the results using k-fold cross validation method

Shibaji

Vasundhara has the ability to teach from the fundamental first priciples. She traverses the journey with the student from fundamnentals to the solution and consequently aids the student to gain an overall perspective of the subject. Her background in Computer Science and Experimetal Particle Astro Physics makes her a unique candidate to be a superprof
