About Me

Sachin Kotecha

Hello, and welcome to my website! I am currently pursuing my MSc in computational astrophysics under the supervision of Dr. James Wadsley at McMaster University. Before this, I completed my BMath at the University of Waterloo in applied mathematics and physics. There, I conducted a USRA with Dr. Michel Fich looking at data from the SCUBA-2 telescope to analyze temperature profiles of cores. You can find out a bit more about my other escapades and advice as an undergrad at this profile.

My personal interests skew heavily towards outreach and education in mathematics and physics. I've had the privilege of working at the fantastic Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing as well as dipping my toes into college education at Humber College.

Outside of the classroom I also love to travel, with my current country count at 13 with hopes of climbing higher. I also have extensive event management and sport tourism experience from my time working as Events Director at an up-and-coming National Sports Organization.
