Dilip Kumar currently pursuing his PhD degree under the supervision of Dr. Soma Sanyal, Associate Professor at the School of Physics, University of Hyderabad has recently attended the International conference “PPC 2023: XVI International Conference on Interactions between Particle Physics and Cosmology” hosted by the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), Daejeon, Korea. The conference took place from 12th to 16th June 2023 and brought together leading experts in particle physics, cosmology, and astrophysics for interdisciplinary discussions.

During the conference, Dilip had the privilege of being selected to give a parallel talk on his recent research work titled “Magnetic Reconnection in the Wakes of Cosmic Strings”. This topic explores the fascinating phenomenon of magnetic reconnection in the vicinity of cosmic strings, providing valuable insights into the dynamics of our universe. Dilip says, “It was an honour to present my findings and engage in discussions with fellow researchers from various fields. Attending this international conference has been a transformative experience for me both professionally and personally. The opportunity to interact with renowned experts and engage in stimulating conversations has expanded my perspective and deepened my passion for research in these fields. I am grateful to have been a part of this gathering that promotes active discussion and interdisciplinary cooperation”.

Dilip Kumar further adds, “The conference provided a remarkable platform for exchanging knowledge, sharing ideas, and fostering collaborations among participants. The diverse range of talks and panel discussions facilitated a vibrant intellectual atmosphere that enriched our understanding of the intricate connections between particle physics, cosmology, and astrophysics”.

While thanking his supervisors and teachers Dilip adds, “I believe that sharing my experience at this conference through the university’s news outlet would not only highlight the achievements of our institution’s researchers but also inspire fellow students and faculty members to explore similar opportunities in their respective areas of interest”.
