Other Schools/Workshops

  1. Tutored the course General Relativity at Summer School on Gravitation and Cosmology, held at HRI during May 12 - 24, 2008. See for further detail about the school.

  2. Taught a two lecture (with a duration of one and a half hour for each lecture) course on Computational Astrophysics, in `Academic Stuff College Meeting' at Burdwan University, Burdwan, West Bengal, India, in Feb, 2006. This meeting is organized on yearly basis by the UGC (University Grants Commission), India, to provide the further research exposure to the permanent faculty members of the Indian Universities and the colleges under such Universities.
