Our Team

Meet our team of physicists and science enthusiasts from around the world who write the content at The Secrets of the Universe and manage it over other social media. We are a young team with one common goal!

Rishabh Nakra (2011-Present)

Our Team 1
Rishabh Nakra

Founder and Admin of The Secrets of the Universe, I am a student pursuing a Master’s Degree in Physics from India. I am a former research intern at the Indian Institute of Astrophysics and research fellow of the Indian Academy of Science. I have a deep interest in Physics and Astronomy and I founded the Facebook web page “The Secrets of the Universe” in 2011. I got interested in astronomy when I was 12 years old and have self-studied the subject since then. I feel that young minds should study astronomy as it really changes the cosmic perspective of an individual. The Secrets of the Universe is one such initiative. I wish to reach out to maximum people and teach them this beautiful subject.

Author and Analyst at The Secrets of the Universe, I am a Science student from India and I’m going to start my Bachelor’s in physics soon. I handle the analytics of The Secrets of the Universe over various social media. Coming over my hobbies, I love reading novels and listening to music. Besides astronomy, I am deeply interested in other subjects including Cymatics and Vortex Mathematics. I like writing about all types of articles ranging from technical stuff to abstract concepts. In the near future, I want to be a researcher and a motivational speaker.

Anna Sekscinska (2019-Present)

Our Team 5
Anna Sekscinska

Senior Author at The Secrets of the Universe, I am a biology and chemistry high school student from Gdansk, Poland. I am a homeschooled student, which means I work on my own and have an exam from each subject every year. It is an unusual solution that comes with a lot of challenges, including self-organization and a lot of determination, but it also leaves a lot of space for student’s self-development, research, and many different projects.I write mostly about space agencies, space exploration, and biology.

Bogdan Teodorescu

Author at The Secrets of the Universe, I am a 17-year-old student from Romania. In the summer of 2018, I founded Astronomy Hub, an organization with the purpose of popularising astronomy and astrophysics, encouraging excellence and of providing training for students. I competed in the National Astronomy and Astrophysics Olympiad, and I am training to be part of the national team. When not doing physics and astronomy, I read philosophy and literature, enjoy classical music and watch movies.
